Sorry for not providing an alternative sooner, better to try and be
constructive.  Bookmarks is the term we use widely already, and the term
links (aka hyperlinks) is familiar to browser users and fairly
straightforward, but I'm not sure it exactly fits the bill.  The other
term I would seriously consider would be Shortcuts.

Thanks for your consideration.
