I'm not sure what component this would go under. There should be a feature to temporary bookmark a page. This feature could be called a Paperclip or Pageclip. What it would do is let you add a page and have the page saved in the cache. It would be useful for shopping. If you're shopping around for something and you don't know what site to buy it from you can Clip this page, so then it stores the page in the cache. Then you can view the pages by using the location bar context menu. So there will be a menu where you can view the pages. It will look like a bookmark menu in the context menu, but the menu won't be that long. This is useful because only one window will be opened, yet all the pages are saved. The pages will be saved until you close the browser. Bookmarks are used to save your favorite sites, but while shopping that's different because you'd want to temporary save a page. This is useful for comparing prices and the best deals without opening multiple windows. The pages would be saved in the cache, but will be updated when visiting the site which will make the pages load faster.
It's called history?
No, see also Mac OS X web browsers that have trays and panels and docks that receive this stuff. It's a sidebar that can hold it. I'll dupe after breakfast.
Can't find the dup anywhere so I am going to go ahead and mark NEW.

timeless: What sidebar were you talking about? Maybe this could be implemented with a sidebar.

With the new cache, this works except for removing bookmarks when browser closed. Can bookmark folders have a option to "empty on exit" ?
Paul Chen is now taking Bookmarks bugs. For your convenience, you can filter email notifications caused by this by searching for 'ilikegoats'.
