>Internet Tip of the Day:
> Yesterday we spoke about the toolbar that can be found at
>the top of the browser. It contains the Back, Forward, Stop and
>a few other frequently used buttons.
> Below the toolbar you will find what is called the
>"Address Bar" or "Location Toolbar". Microsoft and Netscape
>give it different names, even though it's the same thing.
>Since the two companies are enemies, they like to be as
>different as possible from each other. The Address Bar has a
>twofold purpose.
> The first function is to let you know the web address of
>the current web page. Try it out! Visit several different web
>pages. You will notice that each time you click on a different
>link and the new page opens, the address in the Address Bar
>will also change.
> The second function is to allow you to go directly to a web
>page. For example, suppose you are looking at an advertisement
>in the newspaper and they include their web address. You
>decide you would like to visit the website for more
>information. This can be easily accomplished by a click on the
>current address in the Address Bar. Usually when you click on
>the address the current address is highlighted. You may
>immediately type the address you wish to visit and then press
>the "Enter" key on your keyboard. The new web page will load.
>We'll explore more functions of the web browser in the
>coming days.
>Web Site of the Day:
>Learn more about how your web browser works by clicking
>on the "Help" menu at the top of your web browser.
