 Communications via the Internet is relatively new and is expanding rapidly as more people discover the speed at which email messages can be sent and received. The Internet provides access to a vast information resource which is just a few clicks of a mouse button away.

It is inevitable that business via the Internet, though still in its early stages, is set to revolutionize the way we all buy many of the products and services we require. 

Not every business or product lends itself to being marketed over the internet, though as an advertising medium the Internet is already forcing many companies to make fundamental changes to the way they promote their products.

Like all computer related industries and services, the Internet is shrouded by the usual technical mystique, and new (Techie) words which everyone in the business knows, but which are complete gobbledygook to everyone else.

At aegean we have tried to make all our Websites 'New Internet User' friendly. This short tutorial is intended to provide a quick reference to commonly used 'Internet' words as well as some ' browser ' techniques which will hopefully enable you to find the information you are looking for more quickly, strip away some of the mystique and make you feel more relaxed in this new environment.

You found this Website , so you are probably already aware that the real power of the Internet, is the ability to follow hyperlinks on a single WebPage, between WebPages and to other websites. Text links are usually underlined and change color when you move your mouse pointer over them. Pictures and icons can also be links.

Information retrieval can often be slow, and the technique of searching, frustrating to say the least. So to speed things up a bit, try right clicking on the links you are interested in and select, 'open in new window'. By minimizing each window as it appears, you can have several pages downloading at the same time in the background, each in its own separate window.

Each page will be visible at the bottom of your browser window. Clicking on each stored page will restore it, to maximize the window, click the X at the top right of the page. This facility is also useful to ensure that you do not lose your first search page, which you can always return to if the links take you to a dead end.

Your browsers back button is also a useful way of back tracking visited pages, though this does not always work.
