He also talked about the different browsers available i.e. Mosaic, Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator etc. He further explained about the URL i.e. uniform resource locators. These are the unique addresses of internet resources. He further added the basic internet terminologies in his lecture. The various uses of the internet such as e-mail, ftp, telnet, usenet etc. were also discussed. He said that World Wide Web (WWW) is a huge collection of hypertext pages on the internet. The web is the second most popular internet service next to e-mail, but it accesses a larger quantity and greater variety of data than any other service on the internet. He delved on how the e-mails can be sent. He also emphasized on the basic things that should be followed before sending an e-mail.
