How to Search the Web

How Can I Read a Web Page?

Web pages are read using Web browsers, which are much like word processors. You can open Web pages, search for text on the pages, copy text from them, print them, and save them to your own computer. Most Web browsers, such as Firefox, Safari, Camino, and Internet Explorer, contain built-in electronic mail programs, newsgroup readers, and conferencing software so that you can converse with other members of the Internet community.
