What are Web Browsers?
The Internet is currently over 5 million terabytes (5,000,000,000 gigabytes) in size. 61% is videos.
The first Internet-sent message was sent across computers that were right next to each other.
The received message was 'LO'. The intended message was LOG IN but the computer crashed because of the complexity of the 'G'.
The Internet began in 1969 and has grown from just four host computers to tens of millions.
5. The first ever website still exists:
There are many things the internet is used for from movies to social media conversations to that an Internet version of the original first video game: PONG.
And from a learning perspective the Internet is a great way to learn and research information for homework or
Your computer connects to your router using the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol) and
request a local IP
The router will then send your local IP address back to
your computer.
Your router will then request for an IP address to connect to the internet. And the ISP (Internet Service Provider) will assign
you access to your
nearest WAN.
From here you are able to send a virtual 'package' or 'packet' to other routers
to connect to
online servers.
Web browsers have quite a self-explanatory name: they are a visual interface for you to browse the web.
Internet Explorer
Internet Explorer has come with Windows since 1995, therefore it is easily accessible to begin using the Internet and is a well known name when it comes to browsing the web.
Does not keep up with speed and latest updates that other browsers have.
Google Chrome
Internet Explorer is seen by
some as the 'Internet'. This is not correct as the Internet is a physical connection of computers all across the globe. The reason for this error is because IE is the browser already pre-installed on Windows and many people cannot be
bothered, or do
not know how to
change it.
Has had way more updates than most other browsers (means that it is faster and has more compatibility).
It is compatible with the two major operating systems Windows and Mac OSX.
It is not very light or portable. It is big and chunky and can even hog your RAM.
Mozilla Firefox
It is more user friendly than other browsers.
It has been around since 1998, meaning it has good experience.
Is fast and reliable.
Not lightweight, like some other browsers.
Is only found on Apple devices and software.
Other Internet Browsers
There are many Internet browsers, and these are the most common. However, some notable ones include:
The original World Wide Web (1990-1993)
Mosaic (1993-2006)
Opera (1994-Present)
K-meleon (200-2011)
Sea Monkey (2002-2011)
Konqueror (200-Present)
Camino (2002-2012)
Maxthon (200-Oresent)
Lynx (2002-Present)
So, why do schools and businesses always use Internet Explorer?
Well, simply search online and you can actually find answers in simple things like Yahoo forums, like these answers for example:
Reason #1:
Because IE dominates the web browser market, so most schools and businesses haven't made the transition yet.
Reason #2:
Because IE comes with Windows and schools and businesses are too lazy to change.
However, this is not necessarily the truth.
Schools and businesses apparently use IE because it has a large number of security and administrative preferences compared to other browsers...
Fast downloads and lots of security features.

Internet Explorer has an extra add on by the name of:
-IEAK (Internet Explorer Administration Kit) and
-Group Policy
IEAK can do simple things like add favourites and search providers that are implanted into the schools computers.
Group Policy however can lock down features or settings that simple users cannot change by inserting these features into the registry.
Group policy has a wide range of settings that can be implemented into Internet Explorer version 8 and up. This includes things from configuration of what add-ons students implement to the maximum amount of Internet Explorer objects that can be loading at once.
Tips, Tricks
and Techniques
for Search Engines.
Number 1
Put quotation marks around a phrase to search it exactly how you wrote it.
Number 2
Put a minus sign before words that you do not want to see anywhere in your search.
Number 3
Put quotation marks around single words that you definitely want in your search.
Number 4
Do not worry about capital letters or punctuation. Characters like @#%^*()=[]\ and some special characters are ignored.
Number 5
Don’t worry about spelling. Any spelling is corrected to the most common way spelled, whether it is wrong or not!
Number 6
Keep it simple and precise. A one worded answer is likely to get better results.
There are many other search engines out there.
Many look just like Google with a different
name, and many are viruses.

This is a hyperlink:
To put it simple when you click a hyperlink (a link to another page) it will open that page, either in that tab, a new tab or a new window.
Some hyperlinks have 'evolved' further to become images of which can deceive the reader into a deal or can be advertising for a company.
