local area network           World Wide Web         browser         surf
Internet Explorer            (URLs )                short           wide area network.

browser that is used in most schools is called Internet Explorer. The World Wide
Web is the part of the Internet that is the main information store. Websites can
never be mixed up because they all have different web addresses (URLs). The
Internet is an example of a wide area network.

The opposite of a wide area network is a local area network: this is where
computers are linked together over short distances.
