I keep read later at CMD+1. Yes, it takes space there, but it also makes it readily accessible in mobile Safari.

This happens in Mail, too. I’m filing a bug, as that is just silly

Pressing command+a number in Safari triggers items in the Bookmarks bar (whether it is visible or not) in their order from left to right (so the left-most is command+1, etc). It’s a nice way to get a keyboard shortcut that might not be the most memorable off the bat, but becomes muscle memory over a bit of time.

Several weeks/months ago I got rid of Flash in Safari (per Daring Fireball) and added a menu shortcut to the Open in Chrome command. The key command never works until I load the menu manually. I’m glad this isn’t just me. I hope Apple addresses this in an update.

But I think that Instapaper deserves to proudly stay in the bookmark bar. Also Quix has really made it simple to hide a good number of lesser used bookmarklets.

Which is unnerving. So the FastScripts solution has this going for it!
