Searching the Web

You can find all kinds of information on the Web. The best way to find information is to use a search engine. A search engine is a program you access through a Web site and use to search through a collection of Internet information to find what you want. Safari comes with the Google search engine built-in to the program (). When performing a search, the search engine compares keywords with words that it finds on various Internet Web sites. Keywords are words or phrases that best describe the information you want to retrieve. If the search engine finds your keywords in the stored database, it lists links to the matched sites. When you open a link from the results, you can use the SnapBack button to quickly return to your search results. The company that manages the search engine determines what information its database stores, so search results of different search engines vary.

Search for Information

Click the Google Search box, type a word or phrase you want to find, and then press Return.

Click a link in the list of search results to open a Web page.

To return to the last page of Google search results, click the SnapBack button in the Google Search box.

To repeat a previous search, click the magnifying glass in the Google Search box, and then select the search term you want from the pop-up menu.
