Reading List allows you to add web pages to a list to keep for later. It prevents endless tabs from accumulating on your Tab Bar and Bookmarks being filled with entries you only need once.

Though, there are similar services out there, Vivaldi’s Reading List doesn’t require an Extension nor do you need to sign up for an account.
