Chapter 8. Browsing the Internet > Typing a Web Address

Typing a Web Address

Browsing is a great way to explore the Internet, especially if you are not exactly sure what you are looking for. You can browse around to see what information or resources you can find. Think of browsing as flipping through the pages in a book to get a sense of the content or looking through the table of contents. Browsing is like an expedition, and you are not always sure where you'll end up!

If you don't want to browse, you can go directly to a site. Typing a site's address is the fastest way to get to that site. In keeping with the book metaphor, typing an address would be similar to looking up the page number in the index and then going directly to that page. When you know where you want to go—that is, when you know the site's address—you can use this method for accessing content on the Internet.
