"Surfing" is the term used for moving around websites, for example you can use three main ways to find the BBC website:
PRINT friendly . . . when you print this page all of the tabs will print.
Surfing or browsing by clicking on a hyperlink to go to a new webpage.
Links are normally underlined (see below), move your mouse over the link and the pointer changes to a hand:
Simply click once with the left mouse button to surf to the link, it may be:
- on a different website
- a new page on this site or
- a new part of the same webpage.
If you know the web address, type it in the address bar of your web browser, eg type www.bbc.co.uk.
This web address is made up of three parts
www. = world wide web
bbc = site name
.co.uk = uk company
Many large businesses use the international web address
