The internet

The internet is basically sharing information across different devices such as mobile phones, computers, TV's etc. Nowadays you can connect almost everything to the internet, making information available so to say everywhere. For example, my printer is connected via internet, which makes it possible for me to print, scan and copy documents without having to connect the printer via a wire to my computer. I like to think of the internet like an infinite, invisible spiders web, where everything is connected in a way.

HTML

HTML is the universal language that is used to send and present information via the internet. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is more known as coding, the way the web page is built up code by code. HTML is very often assisted by CSS and JavaScript.

Browser

A browser is an application that allows you to access the information that is on the web. It gathers the information or file from a server and displays it through your browser. Examples of the most common browsers are: Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge (formerly known as Internet Explorer) and Opera.

Search engine

A search engine is almost like a huge library that searches HTML files for keywords and picks out the most relevant result. The most known search engine is Google. You might think that when searching for something on Google, it searches the whole internet, but Google has already a database to pick from, so that it is easier and safer for you to find what you are looking for. Not all search engines are the same, for instance YouTube is a search engine for videos, and Amazon is a search engine for products.
