Performing a Basic Web Search

As you might imagine, the early Web offered a lot of information but few easy roads for finding facts. You had to hear about the URL for a Web page of interest or browse and browse until you found the information you were after. Then, some smart groups of people simultaneously developed search engine technology. Basically, a search engine indexes information on Web pages, so that you can perform a search for topics of interest. The search engine typically returns a list of links to potentially related Web pages, so you can review them and identify those that contain the information you need. Internet Explorer includes a Search pane that you can use to locate information on the Web.
