The World Wide Web
The World Wide Web contains the millions of different websites on the Internet, each containing lots of information.

Web Addresses

Each website has a unique web address (URL) to identify it. You can get some useful information about a site by looking at its URL:

Web Browsers

To look at information on the World Wide Web you need a special program called a web browser.

If you know a page’s web address, you can type it into the address bar and go straight to that page.


Most web browsers will also let you:
  • print web pages out onto paper;
  • have a number of different web pages opened up at the same time in different tabs;
  • keep a list of sites you have recently visited (your history) so that you can easily go back to them later.
