Introduction

The Internet is a global computer network that connects individuals, governments, academic and business institutions. It is the "information superhighway" that more and more people have come to depend upon in their daily lives. The World Wide Web—WWW or simply "the Web"—is the collection of information available on the Internet. Information is published on Web sites that are accessed with "browsers."
