The Internet has only been available to the public since the early 90's. It is
the fastest growing communications medium in the history of communications in the
world. A sigle web page can attract many thousands of visitors in a single day.
Print advertisements, brochures and catalogues that you normally pay hundreds of
dollars to create, print and distribute, can be re-created to adapt to the WWW
for a fraction of the cost and can be left in place for ever. No more added costs
associated with continuous re-printing and distribution.
Space on the Internet is far less costly than space in a newspaper or magazine,
and there are no printing or mailing costs involved. Secure on line ordering provides
your clients with the ease of being only a mouse click away from ordering your
products from their own home or office.
Your product or service is made available to your prospective customer's 24 hours
a day, 7 days a week on the WWW.

to another file on the Web. HTML files are viewed with an Internet Browser, like
Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Mozilla's Firefox.
A web browser is a software application required to access web sites on
the internet. Microsoft distribute a free web browser with their operating systems,
called Microsoft Internet Explorer. There are many other web browsers available
on the Internet for free, like Mozilla's
Firefox and Maxthon.
All of those browsers are what are known as tabbed browsers. They allow you to
have many tabs open at the same time giving you the opportunity to surf the net
on more than one screen at a time with only one instance of the browser running.
