A bookmark refers to a highlighted page that a user can set individually for an Internet page. The bookmark is stored in a folder within the browser, so that easy access is possible at any time and favorite pages can be accessed quickly.
Digital bookmarks are not a classic bookmark, but a digital one. Pages on the Internet that are particularly interesting or important for the user, that need to be found again quickly, or that simply should not be lost can be stored as a bookmark and saved in a list that can be called up via the browser. This ensures fast access and eliminates the need to use a search engine. A mouse click on the corresponding bookmark immediately opens the saved link. Bookmarks can have different names, depending on the browser used. With some they are called “Favorites”, with others “Bookmarks”. They are often stored in an extended HTML file, for example with Mozilla or Lynx. With Opera, the bookmarks are stored in a specially formatted text file.
Organization of bookmarks
Bookmarks are stored as links, but most browsers offer the possibility to give the bookmarks meaningful titles. Furthermore, bookmarks can be sorted and organized in folders to keep a better overview. In many folders there is a small logo next to the URL of the bookmark, a so-called favicon, which visually distinguishes and identifies the page from other pages.
In addition to the classic bookmarks, there are so-called live bookmarks or dynamic bookmarks. Here, the preferred pages are reloaded and displayed, so that the latest news can always be read. Some browsers remember the last or most frequently accessed pages and store them on the start page of the browser to allow quick access to favorite pages. When a new tab or window is opened, these favorite pages appear as a thumbnail view that the user only needs to click to open.
In contrast to the internal favorites list, which is limited to one computer, there are social bookmarks, which can be viewed on the Internet and are thus available to a larger group of people. There, links can be updated, added, commented or rated by several people. If the user’s own page is entered in the relevant services, interested users can simply adopt it and add it to their personal list of favorites.
