4. Will I be charged extra for using some Web sites?

Not without your consent. Some Web sites require you to pay a fee to access some or all of the site's content. The site will tell you whether you need to pay, and you can agree or simply decline and leave the site.

5. How come some Web pages take a long time to see?

A number of factors affect the loading speed of Web pages: the amount of text and graphics on the page, the quality of your connection, the traffic on the Internet and at the site your visiting, and so on. You can read more about Internet speed.

9.How come sometimes I can't go back when I hit my browser's Back button?

It's possible that you opened a new browser window without realizing it.Sometimes when you click a Web page link, the page instructs your browser to display the new page in a completely new browser window. This new window sometimes covers the previous window. Try minimizing or closing the browser window you're viewing to see whether the other window appears.
