GET requests can be bookmarked but POSt requests cannot be.
What does ' bookmarked' mean?

Requests can't be bookmarked, only URLs. Since the URL is only a tiny part of a POST request, bookmarking the result page of a POST doesn't make sense.

In this context the Post-Redirect-Get (PRG) pattern is of interest. If that's used, the final result of a POST is a GET (which can be usefully be bookmarked). PRG also helps with the http://faq.javaranch.com/java/DoubleSubmitProblem.

See this excellent JavaRanch Journal article for more detail on that subject.

Most (all?) current web browsers allows you to bookmark a page for further reference. (here in Firefox)
