Chapter 13. Browsing the Web with Internet Explorer

Chapter 13. Browsing the Web with Internet Explorer

After your Internet connection is working (see Chapter 12), use Internet Explorer (IE) to browse the Web. If you’ve used IE before, turn the page; otherwise, you need to improve your vocabulary:

  • The Internet is a global network that connects millions of computers. Unlike online services like AOL, the Internet is decentralized—by design. You can use to it exchange data, news, opinions, ideas, and things (you can buy or sell almost anything on it).

  • The World Wide Web, or simply Web, is a way of viewing and sharing information over the Internet via specially formatted documents—Web pages—that support text, graphics, sounds, video, and links to other Web pages. A Web site is a group of related Web pages.

  • A Web browser is an application that locates and displays Web pages, and downloads files to your hard drive.
