Chapter 8. Exploring the Internet > Understanding Web Sites and Browsers

Understanding Web Sites and Browsers

A Web site contains Web pages linked together to make searching for information on the Internet easier. Web pages are documents that contain highlighted words, phrases, and graphics, called hyperlinks (or simply links) that open other Web pages when you click them. Some Web pages contain frames. A frame is a separate window within a Web page that lets you see more than one Web page at a time. Web browsers are software programs that you use to “surf the Web,” or access and display Web pages. Browsers make the Web easy to navigate by providing a graphical, point-and-click environment. Safari is a new browser from Apple that is built into Mac OS X Panther. Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are other popular browsers. With a Web browser, you can display Web pages from all over the world, use links to move from one Web page to another, play audio and video clips, search the Web for information, bookmark Web pages for easy access, and print text and graphics on Web pages.
