I sort of do this, but rarely get beyond a dozen tabs.  If I don't get to it 
today, there is going to be even more tomorrow, and I won't have more time 
tomorrow.  By the next day there will be even more.  I find that I can't get to 
read /everything/ I want.  If I don't get to stuff in a few days, the tabs get 
closed, and I move on.

Nothing personal, but 300-500 tabs seems like the electronic equivalent of 
those recluse homes with newspapers and magazines piled six feet high 
everywhere with just a maze to navigate to the refrigerator and the bathroom.
