Adding Web Views

If you want to jump to a Web page in the middle of your presentation, you can use a hyperlink, as described in the previous section. But sometimes you don't want to leave your presentation, but you do want to show a Web site. You could take a screenshot of the site and insert it into your slide as a graphic, but that only shows the site as it appeared when you took the screenshot. Because many Web sites change constantly, the screenshot approach may be too static. Keynote 2 solves this problem with its new Web view. This is a snapshot of a Web site, but (if you have an Internet connection) it automatically refreshes and updates when you open the presentation file, so you're showing a very recent version of the site to your audience.

A Web view doesn't have scroll bars, and you can't click on links inside the Web view, so it's not as though you have a browser built into your presentation. But Web views are useful to show your audience what a site looks like. If you do want to go to the site in a browser, by default the Web view is a hyperlink to the site, so you can click the Web view and the site will open in your default browser.
