Booknews
Both an introduction to the Internet for beginners, and a complete reference for Internet users. Explains how to get connected to the Internet, browse the web with Internet Explorer 4.0 and Netscape Navigator 4.0, communicate with mail and newsgroups, and create a web site. This all-new edition covers fewer software packages, because of the market thinning, and has omitted server and technical information that the average user doesn't need.
