!.What kind of computer is best for the Internet?

Almost any computer is capable of connecting to the Internet, as long as it's equipped with a modem and the the right software. Windows, MAC and Linux computers all work well for Internet access. Computers with faster processors tend to display Web pages more quickly than slower computers,and a color monitor is very helpful for viewing Web page graphics.

2. What other hardware do I need?

Aside from a computer with a modem installed, you don't need anything more (aside from a phone line to plug the modem into) to connect to the Net.

3. Does it matter which Web browser I use?

If you use a well-established browser like Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, you'll be able to access almost any page on the Web. These browsers can display text, graphics, sound, animation, video, and almost every other feature you're likely to find on a Web page. Some other browsers sacrifice some of these features in the name of speed. It's important to keep in mind that most Web pages are designed to work best with Netscape's and Microsoft'sbrowsers. So, try both, and use the one you like best.

4.How do I get a newer Web browser?

The most recent version of Netscape Navigator (which is included in the Netscape Communicator suite) and Microsoft Internet Explorer are available for download on the web. You can read more about downloading if you're not sure how to do it.
