Temporary set of bookmarks based on user authenticated token

A typical user's browser bookmarks can often become cluttered and difficult to maintain. This disclosure allows a temporary set of bookmarks to be created based on user authenticated token. After a user authenticates himself, theses bookmarks dynamically appear in the list. Additional bookmarks can be loaded when the user is authenticated. These bookmarks are removed when the user logs out or his token expires . This provides easy of use to the user allowing these bookmarks to be available and removing his responsibility of maintaining the bookmarks.

Example: if a user logs into his companies intranet then specific company related bookmarks will dynamically appear such as a bookmark to the company's HR and phone book. If the token expires or the user logs out then the bookmarks are removed.

The user must first authenticate himself. When the user's id and password are verified then the bookmarks are downloaded from the server. These bookmarks are valid only as long as the user authenticated token is valid. If the user logs out or his token expires then bookmarks will be removed.
