Depending on your web browser, a links toolbar can also be called a "bookmarks toolbar" or a "favorites bar".
The purpose of a links toolbar is to provide fast access to your top favorite web links.
In Firefox and some other browsers, you can drag links from a web page directly onto your Bookmarks Toolbar.
In Internet Explorer you can select the Favorites Bar folder when you save a favorite link.
The links toolbar is also a place where you can store bookmarklets
(also called favlets or browser buttons).
