Apply a label to the message you send (e.g., "Waiting for Reply"). Then you can check that folder every few days to see which messages have been responded to and remove the label as appropriate. I use a filter to look for a specific string in the body of the message to automate adding the label.
First turn on keyboard shortcuts: To turn these case-sensitive shortcuts on or off, click the gear icon at the top of any Gmail page and then Mail settings. Choose the option next to "Keyboard shortcuts" to turn them on. You can also enable shortcutsautomatically by going to http://mail.google.com/mail/?kbd=1 After selecting an email use L, it ...

http://followupthen.com/ is a free service which helps you with this. Email, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org to get a response in 3 days. There are many other time formats available. After the specified time period, the service will reply to the email. For your use case, you'll likely want to BCC the followup address.
There's no standard way to do this. There is however, a Labs feature which shows time to the next event on the sidebar. But again not on the title.
If you more a visual person you can use a sticky note whiteboard like yommoo.com
Rescue Time has automatic monitoring (windows) and project management links.
You can use a note application Google Notes or Evernote. I'm pretty sure that Evernote has a desktop client and a mobile application (at least for Android).
Under your iDoneThis calendar are three links: Share, Feed, and Invite. Click on Feed and turn on the secret link. You will be given a link, and this is what you feed into Google Calendar. Now just follow http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?answer=37100 to feed your iDoneThis into them.
If you use GreaseMonkey, you can hide the Hot Network Questions. CleanTube would work for YouTube. I agree with Punchlinern's sentiment, that instead of trying to find one add-on that will work across sites, you are looking at a bunch of workarounds rather than a tool that is smart enough to recognize what's central to a page vs. a distraction. Keep ...
I haven't found any extension like what you're describing either. A workaround could be to use Adblock Plus or another similar tool and block the specified elements on the sites. You have to do it on every site but I guess you'll eventually have saved time on it.
Try Trello. You can create progress lists and move single entries from one list to another, keep addresses, links and other data in lists too and combine multiple lists in one board.

followupthen.com Email "NextTuesday@followupthen.com" and next Tuesday you'll get that email back in your inbox. That service is free. For SMS service, I think you pay.

Use a calendaring app. Google Calendar lets you create additional calendars that can be separate from your time management. Then, switch to Agenda View for chronological list of events.
For simple quick little notes, why not Twitter? It's easy, it forces you to keep your notes short (if that's what you're looking for), there are a million interfaces for it by now, and anybody else interested in your log (a spouse, a stalker, etc.) can follow you (if you allow).
I liked ClockingIt pretty much as long as I used it. It is free, you can host it yourself if you want: no restrictions or limits one-click time tracking clean and out of the way interface interactive gantt chart & scheduling flexible reporting multiple ways to communicate tracks and indexes all changes notifications via email, rss & ical ...
