The term is often mistakenly used as a synonym for the Internet itself, but the Web is a service that operates over the Internet, just as email and Usenet also do. The history of the Internet dates back significantly further than that of the World Wide Web. The concept of a global information system connecting homes is prefigured in " A Logic Named Joe ", a short story by Murray Leinster , in which computer terminals, called "logics", are present in every home. Although the computer system in the story is centralized, the story anticipates a ubiquitous information environment similar to the Web. The cultural impact of the Web was imagined even further back in a short story by E.
History of the World Wide Web
Commercial activity on the Internet has only recently been possible. When conceived in , the then ARPAnet was purely the domain of US government research agencies and academic institutions. ARPAnet was developed at the height of the cold war as an indestructible computer communications network. The first of these browsers to be developed was Mosaic, of which 2. It is not only the order that the Web has brought to the Internet that has made it so popular. A great deal of its attraction stems from its excellent user- friendly front-end.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you. Current estimates suggest that 25 million people in the UK have access to the World Wide Web, and 14 million use it regularly [ 1 ]. Worldwide over million people have logged on [ 2 ]. Potts and Wyatt used a cross-sectional survey method asking respondents to retrospectively estimate the number of their patients who had used the Internet for health information in the past month. It is possible that recall bias may have led to an underestimate, but it is also likely that not all patients who consult the Internet reveal this to their doctor. The potential impact of the wide availability of online health information on the practitioner-patient relationship has been debated [ 12 , 13 ]. The Internet is a key influence in changing the balance of knowledge power between health care professionals and the public, empowering patients to become more involved in health care decision making and contributing to the deprofessionalization of medicine.
World Wide Web: Internet and Web Information Systems WWW is an international, archival, peer-reviewed journal that covers all aspects of the Web, including issues related to architectures, applications, Internet and Web information systems, and communities. It provides in-depth coverage of the most recent developments in the Web, enabling readers to keep up-to-date with this dynamically changing technology. The journal also focuses on all database- and information-system topics that relate to the Internet and the Web, particularly on ways to model, design, develop, integrate, and manage these systems. Appearing quarterly, the journal publishes papers describing original ideas and new results, vision papers, reviews of important techniques in related areas, innovative application papers, and progress reports on major research projects. It offers the ideal forum for researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners to share their rapidly developing knowledge and report on new advances. Issue 1, January Rights and permissions.
By browsing the Internet, much as you would browse the shelves of a library, you can access information on seemingly limitless topics. In addition, web-based catalogs are available in many libraries to assist researchers in locating printed books, journals, government documents, and other materials. Possibly the biggest obstacle facing researchers on the Internet is how to effectively and efficiently access the vast amount of information available with the simple click of the mouse. With the Internet's potential as a research tool, teachers must instruct and guide their students on manageable strategies for sorting through the abundance of information. The search for reliable resources can be both overwhelming and frustrating if students are left on their own in their initial search.

Searching and Researching on the Internet and the World Wide Web, 5th Edition
A search engine is a software system that is designed to carry out web searches Internet searches , which means to search the World Wide Web in a systematic way for particular information specified in a textual web search query. The search results are generally presented in a line of results, often referred to as search engine results pages SERPs The information may be a mix of links to web pages , images, videos, infographics , articles, research papers, and other types of files. Some search engines also mine data available in databases or open directories. Unlike web directories , which are maintained only by human editors, search engines also maintain real-time information by running an algorithm on a web crawler.
These days, everyone is expected to be up to speed on Internet search techniques. But there are still a few tricks that some users -- and even savvy searchers -- may not be aware of. Did you hate memorizing seemingly insignificant facts for tests at school? No photographic memory?
After intro ducing early Internet search engines, which are pertinent as precursors for the current range of WWW search engines, the problems of searching the WWW link persistence, lack of integrated search software and the resulting search engine types keyword or directory are analysed. Search engines of all types are then compared across their generic features database content, retrieval software, and search interface , rather than on a search engine by search engine basis.

Или мы начинаем отключение, или же мы никогда этого не сделаем. Как только эти два агрессора увидят, что Бастион пал, они издадут боевой клич. Фонтейн ничего не ответил, погруженный в глубокое раздумье. Слова Сьюзан Флетчер о том, что ключ находится в Испании, показались ему обнадеживающими.

Фонтейн не мог понять, в чем дело, но, какими бы ни были причины ее состояния, выяснять это сейчас не было времени.
Я найду свободную комнату и покажу вам Испанию с такой стороны, что вам будет что вспомнить, - И она сладко причмокнула губами. Беккер изобразил улыбку. - Я должен идти. Он извинился перед немцем за вторжение, в ответ на что тот скромно улыбнулся.
Внезапно кто-то начал колотить кулаком по стеклянной стене. Оба они - Хейл и Сьюзан - даже подпрыгнули от неожиданности. Это был Чатрукьян. Он снова постучал.
