If you’re new to the online world, you may be confused by some of the basic terms used in conjunction with the internet, such as ‘browser’, ‘home page’ and ‘surf’. A browser is the program used to ‘surf’, or visit web sites on the internet. Some common names of browsers include Internet Explorer and Firefox. Every browser works in basically the same way; it is the vehicle you have to get into in order to travel the internet. When you click on your browser program, the first page that pops up is called your ‘home page’. This may be a news site like CNN, or a search site like Yahoo. Your home page can be changed at any time to any address you wish. Clicking on the little house icon at the top of your browser window will return you immediately to your home page.
