Surfing the Internet

Remember that the Web is a collection of interconnected Web pages. Almost every Web page contains links to other sites. These links (also called hot links, hypertext links, and hyperlinks) are often underlined. You can locate these links by moving your mouse cursor over the underlined description. If the mouse cursor changes to a hand, you can click the hand to move to that page. After a brief pause, your Web browser displays the page.

Tip

A link is nothing more than a URL address to another Web site. The link often displays a description and not a technical URL address. (As you move your mouse cursor over a link, your Web browser's status bar displays the actual URL address to the link.) Therefore, you can traverse related Web pages without worrying about addresses; just click link descriptions to move to those sites.
