Section: Internet Applications

This section of the DataBook® For Linux Users is about Internet applications.

Email, web browsers and other Internet applications are some of the most compelling application programs available on computers today. The Internet has given us many forms of fast, almost instant communication with people next door or around the world. They are becoming indispensable.

It is nearly impossible for those of us who have lived through the Internet explosion to imagine living without it. It is truly impossible to imagine if you were born in the last 20 years.

In this section I cover primarily Email and Web browsing. Other Internet applications are covered as well, but those two are ubiquitous and will get the lion’s share of my time and space.
