Browsing the Web
Internet Explorer 8 makes browsing the Web easy. In this lesson, we'll talk about using the address and search bars. You'll also learn how to use tabs, access your browsing history, and view your downloads.
If you don't have a lot of experience using a web browser, you may want to review our lesson on Browser Basics, which covers the basic points of web browsing in more detail.
Internet Explorer 8 has improved the Address Bar and Search Bar to make them function in a smarter way. Have you ever forgotten a previous web address or the full name of something you were searching for? The Address and Search bars now provide suggestions to help you find what you're looking for.
The Address Bar assists you in recalling previously entered websites. As you enter your address, it will search across your History, Favorites, and RSS Feeds for matches. It highlights the matching characters in blue, making it easier to identify results at a glance.
