Favorites and bookmarks

Favorites and bookmarks

  • Favorites and bookmarks – the terms are interchangeable.

  • Bookmark can be a noun or a verb, e.g., “to bookmark a site” means “to mark the site so that you don’t have to type it in again the next time you go there. As a noun, a site saved for later is a bookmark. The word favorite is only a noun: a site saved for later is a favorite. Bookmarks and favorites are time-savers so that you don’t have to retype a website address all the time.
