Meaning of BOOKMARK in English


Similar to a real-life bookmark, an Internet bookmark acts as a marker for a website. (In Internet Explorer, they're called "Favorites".) When using a web browser, you can simply select a bookmark from the browser's menu to go to a certain site. This way, you don't have to do the redundant typing-in of the URL every time you visit one of your favorite sites. Plus, who remembers those 200-character addresses anyway? In most browsers, to create a bookmark, you simply choose "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmarks menu when you're at a page which you'd like to bookmark. Woah, four "bookmarks" in one sentence. It's pretty simple. So, now that you know how, be sure to bookmark =)
