How to Add Websites as your Favorites on Mac

Favorites, also known as bookmarks, allow you to save your favorite websites or pages as a direct link. To put it simply, it’s an electronic bookmark for saving a web page’s address. Bookmarks are widely used, because they really come in handy when there’s a web page that you want to remember and be able to quickly visit another day. When you bookmark a page, in fact, you are creating a shortcut for quick access to said web page; you can access that bookmark at any time to view the web page again without going through the hassle of searching for it all over the Internet. It will save you a lot of time!
