Product Description

Nowadays the Internet and the World Wide Web are front-page news almost every day, so you know they're important. But if you don't know why they're important or what they are -- let alone how to use them -- Internet and World Wide Web Simplified is for you. This accessible, full-color guide features illustrations by the renowned maranGraphics team of artists. You see step-by-step exactly what your computer screen will look like as you follow plain-English instructions for what to enter and what to click. With Internet and World Wide Web Simplified, abstractions like protocols, HTML, e-mail and IP address, and the like are rendered in fun, informative illustrations that anyone can understand (and even gurus can use to understand concepts better).
Learning about the Net doesn't get any easier than in this addition to the 3-D Visual Series from IDG. With its full-color illustrations and extremely brief text, Internet and World Wide Web Simplified is perfect for beginners. It starts with an introduction to the Internet, which explains what the Net has to offer, who pays for it, how it got started, and how you can get connected. The book then moves on to discuss the World Wide Web, browsers, plug-ins, security issues, Java, ActiveX, and VRML in simple terms. Other topics include e-mail, mailing lists, newsgroups, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), and multiplayer games.

Internet and World Wide Web Simplified includes a good beginner's directory to Web sites covering such subjects as where to find shareware programs, where to shop online, where to get information on a variety of topics, and more. The graphics are cute but never cross over the line to silly. If you know someone who has tried unsuccessfully to learn about the Net from other books, hand them this.
