If you have been using the Internet for quite some time now then you should already consider yourself an expert when it comes to the extent of your knowledge with regard to Internet terminologies. But for those who are new to the cyber world then there are a few things that you should learn by heart to make your Internet experience more meaningful and productive.
For starters you should already know by now that the three Ws stand for World Wide Web which is one of the most basic things. There are also quite a lot of terms and abbreviations that Internet users have to keep in mind to make Internet surfing trouble-free. A couple of these abbreviations that are very important and would make every search easier are edu which represents educational institutions, com for commercial businesses, org for other organizations, and so on and so forth.
There are also times when people need to search for a lot of things and then get tangled up and miss some of the websites during the process and end up doing the whole process all over again. That is why the menu option that is on top of the screen labeled Favorites plays a very important role in researching. In this way people can keep track of the websites that they want to visit again next time.
Search Engine is the software that people use when they want to search something online. It could be anything under the sun. People just need to key in the topics or the subjects that they want to read about and then a list of options will be shown for the Internet user to choose which is closer to what he or she is looking for. Some of the top search engines are Ask Jeeves, Google, Yahoo, AOL Search, EBAY, LYCOS, MSN Search, Netscape, Wikipedia, and so on. There are just a couple of things that Internet users have to remember when surfing. To save time, Internet enthusiasts need to make their searches better and more efficient and it is also very important for people to know that not everything that they read and get from the internet is 100% reliable. There are also some frauds and other schemes going on online.
There is also a net dictionary now available for all Internet aficionados to make use of if they encounter some terms and other expressions or jargon that they find a bit difficult to understand. The dictionary is complete from A to Z, all the Internet vocabulary that people need to make their surfing experience well-organized and more effective. Internet users can visit Dictionary.com, Google Dictionary, Law.com Dictionary, Merriam Webster Visual Dictionary, and the like.
Lastly, it would also be very helpful if you take on a browser that you are most comfortable using, people can consider Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, or Safari, and most of all practice makes perfect, so if you make the most of all the skills and things that you gain knowledge of then you will be an accomplished Internet user in no time.
