We prefer to call them bookmarked favorites.  Or sometime we call them our
favorite bookmarks.  Since these terms are not browser specific, and yet
they address both browsers.

Though I fear I may be opening up an "e-mail" vs. "email" discussion, I
was wondering what word/phrase people use for general Web sites when

- "Bookmark" (technically a Netscape/Opera term)
- "Add to Favorites" (an IE-specific term)
- or do you use a combination ("you can bookmark/add this page to your

And, for the non-Americans, if "Add to Favorites" is used, do you follow
the spelling in the browser ("Favorites") or go with "Favourites"?

Personally I lean toward "bookmark", and in the cases where I don't, I use
the "-our" spelling.
