AOL Favorites is an option available to you when you apply for an account for AOL. It allows users to bookmark a website and save it to their account. If you want to transfer these bookmarks to another browser, you can do so with a plugin for your browser or by copying them manually. You can also move your favorites from one version of AOL to another, should you be using a new computer.
