Hypertext - richly cross-referenced text.

Browsing is accomplished by following links, the connections between related information. A number of different Internet facilities allow browsing, including the Web, gopher, and wais.

The Web is a random collection of information written and cross-referenced by the masses. Information is stored on computers around the world that are connected to the Internet. Following trails of connections often lead to remote places.

Ways to browse & navigate:

    1. Click on highlighted text (or a picture). Notice cursor change. Notice URL at bottom of window.
    2. Go directly to a site using the URL. e.g. http://www.educationworld.com/
    3. Make a bookmark
    4. Use a bookmark.
    5. Use the history list ("Go" menu).
