What is a browser?
A browser is your gateway to the internet.
80% of the world now has access to the internet. It has become an integral part of our lives.
When you first buy a new PC, your default browser is Microsoft Edge.
Other popular browsers are Google Chrome, Safari (on Mac), Mozilla Firefox and Opera.
But they all do the same job.
Type in a web address in the address bar at the top of the page to go straight to a webpage.
Or go to google.com (or google.com.au, google.co.uk, google.co.nz etc. if you are in countries outside the USA)
… then use the search box to type what you are looking for, e.g. “new red sports car” or “latest taylor swift album”.
Your search words are not case-sensitive - you can type in lowercase, uppercase or a mixture of the two.
When you press ENTER, you will see a big list of results matching your search. Click away and have fun!
