So to split this into clear parts i have been taking this out of tickets like: 3741 and 2875
I will summarize a discussion i had with Eben yesterday:
You open a browse session at school called "My science report", with several session bookmarks for various pages you care about. You might want to read one of the long pages at home that night. So you star it. That makes you a bookmark entry in the Journal. But when you get home, you just resume the browse session from before. When you go back to the page you starred earlier (navigation history or by clicking on the icon in the session bookmarks), Browse recognizes the URL and shows you the cached version automatically, and it lets you know it's cached by "lighting up" the star icon and giving you a message telling you how old it is.
The star button will be used to mark an URL for keeping. This generates a journal object and stores the cached data with it. When opening a browser session the journal will be searched for the global bookmarks and loads the data.
You could just open up a bookmark directly as well, but you would just get a new browse instance with it.
