Keeping Track of Your Favorite Sites

 

As users browse the web, they often visit certain sites repeatedly and may want to record their URL and title. IE7 provides a feature called favorites for bookmarking (keeping track of) such sites (Fig. 2.11). Any page’s URL can be added to the list of favorites using the Favorites menu’s Add to Favorites… command, or by pressing the yellow star and green plus icon in the upper left corner of the window. A Favorites window can also be accessed by clicking the yellow star icon on the toolbar and clicking the Favorites option. Favorites can be accessed at any time by selecting them with the mouse from the Favorites menu. Favorites can be categorized and grouped into folders in the Organize Favorites dialog (dis-played when Organize Favorites… is selected from the Favorites menu). These folders ap-pear as submenus in the Favorites menu. The Organize Favorites dialog also allows users to rename, delete and move favorites between folders.

 

FF2 has a similar feature called bookmarks, which can be added with the Bookmark This Page... option in the Bookmark menu and used the same way that Favorites are described in this section (Fig. 2.12). Most browsers have their own version of Favorites or Bookmarks.
