Well put. "Links" is short and to the point, unambiguous.
"Bookmarks" sounds like a feature that's somehow integrated with the
browser, or aware of the author's personal collection of URLs. I
would have to explain the concept of "Bookmarks" to clients almost as
much as I have to explain the current "Blogroll." "Links" would
require little or no explanation. It is what it says it is. I don't
get the appeal of "Bookmarks" at all. Why create needless confusion?
