IE browser is just one of the many Internet crawlers to open up a Web
Page. To name a few; Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Netscape Navigator and
Mozilla Firefox, are all Internet browsers; apparently, one of
these Internet browsers will allow you
to embark on a search for a certain vacation spot, read news, download a music video, watch a
film, or even book your next flight to Banff National Park of Canada. FYI!
There are more Internet web searchers out there, which I haven’t mentioned.

A Title bar tells you the name of the web page, (i.e. MSN
Canada, and also shows the resize buttons commands to use to, [minimize,
restore, and exit or close] the web page, go Home, add or bookmark the current
web page on your favorites sites, and change the settings of the web browser.
Address bar is the box where you type a URL, [uniform
resource locator] for you to visit; also it shows you the address of the

While you’re already browsing the Internet, you should
also know how to activate a link. (Let’s find out first, what is a world wide
web?) A World Wide Web is a system of
hypertext documents-(electronic files), that contain elements known as,
hyperlinks or just links which target other parts of a document or other
documents altogether. A link can be a text or a phrase or a graphic image. Each
hypertext document on the web is called a web page and is stored on a computer
on the Internet called a web server. A web page can contain links to other web
pages located anywhere on the Internet – on the same computer as the original
webpage or on an entirely different computer halfway across the world.
Usually, a web link is colored, underlined and in bold
font. When you click on a web link, it will let you jump to a new location, it
can be on another web page, on a different web server and in another country.
While I'm in Canada, one of my website's links is from a
far away land which is my native country, the Philippines. (it is 17 hours and
a half by plane from Calgary
International Airport and 8 hours car ride from Manila International Airport),
absolutely, one of the most important features of the World Wide Web. Linking a
page is a special feature of the WWW (World Wide Web).
Connecting To A Hyperlink
To successfully connect to a hyperlink can vary, it
depends on the number of people trying to connect on the same website at that
time, the web address design, (such as, if the web site is designed with heavy
graphics, it’ll be slow it’s Internet connection), and how fast is the speed of
your own Internet connection.
Adding Websites or Bookmarking
To add a specific
website to your Favorites web addresses, just Go> Standard Buttons
Toolbar and click on Star Icon
command to bookmark the page, or
Go>Menu Bar, Point to select Favorites and click on Add to Favorites/Add
to Favorites Bar option.
