AOL's Favorite Places stores the bookmarks you've saved from internet sites that you want to revisit frequently. Saving the links to your Favorite Places lets you recall them quickly. Export the Favorite Places list as a backup to make it available for use in a browser outside of AOL. Once exported from AOL, you can import the HTML file through the "Import" function of the "File" menu in your browser.
