Understanding Searches

There are several kinds of searches you can perform in Internet Explorer 5. You can search the Web for information anywhere on the Web, search a document, or search within a Web site.

Searching the Web

You search the Web when you want to find public information on, for example, "Elvis." You search the Web with the aid of a search tool (also referred to as a search engine). A search tool or engine is a program that searches the Web continually for documents, recording their contents in a complex database. You provide a keyword or phrase to the search engine, and it searches its database for matches to your query. The results of your search are returned to you in a Web page as a list of links pointing to those sites with the most hits at the top of the list.
