How to Put a Favorites List on a Flash Drive

Every Web browser has the ability to bookmark sites. By creating a bookmark, you add a link to a site right in the menu of your browser so you can always find your favorite pages quickly and easily. This is so convenient, it can be frustrating to browse the Internet on another computer, where you don't have access to your bookmarks. By exporting your bookmarks to an HTML file, you can carry them around with you and open them anywhere on any browser.
