This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0 and higher

Saving a webpage as a bookmark is a great way to quickly access your favorite sites. Just as in webOS 1.x and 2.x, you can still save web bookmarks in webOS 3.x, but the process is a bit different from what you may be used to from your webOS phones.

You have two options on how to save a bookmark. The quickest and easiest way is to tap the send/share icon (  ) to the right of the URL bar in the browser and then select "Add Bookmark". To access the bookmark in the future, just tap on the History/Bookmark panel icon ( ) that is on the right of that top-bar in the web browser. This will pop-up a sliding pane from the right of the screen, which 3 additional selections within that pane. You will want to make sure the "bookmark" icon ( ) is selected, listing all of your saved bookmarks. This also presents you with the second option of saving a bookmark, which is by tapping the "Add Bookmark" icon ( ) on the bottom right of that pane.

Unlike in earlier versions of webOS, you can not initially specify the name or icon for the bookmark. In addition, once set, you can also not rearrange the bookmarks; they are just added to the top of the list. However, if you would like to change the text or the website address of the bookmark, you can tap on the  icon to get a pop-up where you can edit those respective text fields. When you are done with the bookmark pane, just slide it to the right of the screen.
