Chapter 8. Browsing the Internet > Using Links to Navigate

Using Links to Navigate

Information on the Internet is easy to browse because documents contain links to other pages, documents, and sites. A link is a text or graphic reference to another site. Links, also called hyperlinks, usually appear underlined and sometimes in a different color. Images can also be links.

Links are what makes the Internet so valuable, as you can use links to jump to related sites. For example, if you see a link for Careers (refer to Figure 8.1, which contains a Careers & Jobs link), you can click that link to view career-related pages. At the Careers page, you may see links for resume tips and job postings (see Figure 8.4). You can click one of these links to go to that page. Jumping from link to link is called different things: navigating, surfing, or browsing. Using links is simple and is the best way to become familiar with the wealth of information on the Internet.
