Where does the Internet Come From?
Simply put, the internet is a network of computers that allow you to go online.
The World Wide Web is a collection of websites that can be accessed through the internet. Interaction with a website requires the use of a web browser or app installed on your computer device.
With a web browser like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or others; a user is able to communicate with email and social media, shop, get information, and more.
