    Try pressing on it until a menu pops up.

    Sure. Well, maybe not exactly "Favorites" as in Windows, but more like "bookmarks" of pages that you've been to and might want to return to later.

    The exact process seems to be a bit different in each browser, but I'm pretty sure that they will all do it. In the one I'm currently using, the xScope Browser, the bookmark page is a little flag with a star on it. Tap that symbol, and a page with thumbnails of all your bookmarked pages pops up for you to select from.

    The xScope Browser is pretty nice. It has tabbed browsing, all sorts of menus, and a one-touch exit button that lets you quit it instantly without having to back-up through every page you've been to.
