Chapter 22. Surfing the Web > Let's Go Surfin'!

Let's Go Surfin'!

Okay, now you're ready to launch Internet Explorer and head out to the World Wide Web. Follow these step-by-step instructions for a quick cruise around the Web—just to see what's out there:

1.
Connect to your ISP, and then launch Internet Explorer. IE appears on your desk top and displays its default home page. (Typically, this is some page on Microsoft's Web site.)

2.
Let's find out what's happening out in the real world by heading over to one of the most popular news sites. Enter www.cnn.com into the Address box, and then click the Go button. This takes you to the CNN.com site, shown in Figure 22.3. Click any headline to read the complete story.

Figure 22.3. Get informed at CNN.com.


3.
Now, let's do a little searching at Yahoo!, one of the Web's premier search sites. (You can learn more about searching in Chapter 23, “Finding Stuff Online.”) Enter www.yahoo.com in the Address box, and then click the Go button. Ready to search? Enter que publishing in the Search the Web box at the top of the page (shown in Figure 22.4), and then click the Yahoo! Search button.

4.
When the search results page appears, find the listing for Que Publishing (should be near the top) and click the link. You now should be taken to the Web site for the publisher of this book (shown in Figure 22.5). Click any link to learn more about Que and the other books they publish.
