There are many benefits of saving your favorite websites or particular web pages. Sometimes, if you clear cache or delete items and autofill, the internet browser stops showing your most visited web pages on the home screen. If you wish to find any web page after some time, just bookmark it.

What Is a Bookmark?

A bookmark is basically a way to save a web page's URL for future use inside a web browser. It's useful because it saves time, and you don't have to remember long URL addresses.

Why Do You Need to Bookmark a Web Page?

People can't remember all the websites or particular web pages they visit frequently. It's where bookmarks help them access every page with ease. Bookmark saves the URLs of the web pages. There is no need to type the full address of the web pages. You can just click the bookmark to open the particular web page. It's time-saving and frees you from remembering all the URLs you visit.
