bookmark portal

A bookmark portal is a free application service provider (ASP) Web site that allows registered users to save "bookmark" (Netscape) or "favorite" (Internet Explorer) Web links so that they can be accessed at any time from any Internet-connected device. With a bookmark portal,� it is not necessary to transfer bookmarks from browser to browser or from machine to machine; instead, the user simply logs on to the ASP's Web site to access their bookmarks.

Many bookmark sites give users the option of creating a "personal web portal" where it is possible to manage multiple e-mail accounts and calendars, share files as well as bookmarks, and synchronize�personal digital assistant (PDA) devices remotely.
