I am not sure if this is what you are looking for but you can add an address toolbar to your task bar and then put as many Internet addresses there as you want. When you click on the menu arrow, all of the addresses you have in there will show up. To get the Address area to show up on your task bar just right click on the task bar and then go to the Toolbar item which will lead you to the Address item. I am sorry if you already know this. Hope it is of some help, however. Thanks.
