First and foremost

This little lesson about using your web browser is very useful and to get the most out of this course you may need to do it. It will not take long and will repay you very well




Using a web browser

A web browser is a type of software that allows you to find and view websites on the Internet. Even if you didn't know it, you're using a web browser right now to read this page! There are many different web browsers, but some of the most common ones include Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.

No matter which web browser you use, you'll want to learn the basics of browsing the Web. In this lesson, we'll talk about navigating to different websites, using tabbed browsing, creating bookmarks, and more.





How do I clear my Internet browser history?

As you browse the Internet, most web page data is cached locally on your computer to help pages load faster and to reduce the amount of data transferred over your Internet connection. ... 

From time to time, this can cause issues as the browser remembers old permissions and mistakes, and the history and cache need to be deleted to clear it and start fresh. This rectifies most errors one encounters on the web. So, find out which browsers you use and see the instructions here to clear your history and your cache.
