If you’re reading an article on the internet, it can be incredibly annoying if your reading experience is cut short for some reason. You can save yourself the time and hassle of having to manually search for the exact same article once again by creating a system of bookmarks that you can then use to speed up your browsing experience in the future.

A bookmark can be used to save a series of webpages, providing you instant access to them. Any webpage can be bookmarked, as well as any page that has a video or podcast embedded into it. Bookmarks can be used as a reminder of a specific site, or act as a way of sending the link to a friend.

There’s no limit into the amount of bookmarks you can create on your Ice Cream Sandwich device, but the way in which the browser stores and saves them differs. For this tutorial we are using the default browser. Not only is it one of the best browsers currently available for surfing the mobile web, it also has a sophisticated and unique way of dealing with any bookmarks you create while browsing on your smartphone.

In this tutorial we’ll show you how to first find your bookmarks. We’ll then discuss how to go about saving your bookmarks, how you can customise the look of your bookmarks, and we’ll even show you a few little tips on improving your bookmarking experience.


  1. Find Browser icon

    Open the app drawer while on the home screen on your device and then scroll through your pages of apps until you find the default Browser icon. Press it to open the browser on your device.


  2. Browser home screen

    By default, the default browser will open up on to the Google Search screen. Use the search bar to find a website you want to bookmark.


  3. Save to Bookmarks

    With the site you wish to bookmark open, press the options button on the browser. From here open the Save to Bookmarks page to continue.


  4. Where to save?

    When you start to save your bookmark, make sure the ‘Add to’ option at the bottom of the list is selected to Bookmarks and not any other folder.


  5. Enter the details

    You can now begin to fill in any other blank spaces on the bookmark form. Once you’ve finished adding all the information, press the OK button to finialise it.


  6. Manage your bookmarks

    The main bookmark screen will now show on your smartphone’s screen. Here you’ll be able to open up a webpage quickly by selecting one of the bookmarks.
