Below is a list of key words and their definitions:
- Bookmark - A bookmark is a saved shortcut that directs your browser to a specific webpage. It stores the title, URL, and favicon of the corresponding page. Saving bookmarks allows you to easily access your favorite locations on the Web.
- Browser - Software programs that enable you to view web pages and other documents on the Internet. They "translate" HTML-encoded files into the text, images, sounds, and other features you see. Google Chrome is a browser.
- Cache - In browsers, "cache" is used to identify a space where web pages you have visited are stored in your computer. A copy of documents you retrieve is stored in cache. When you use GO, BACK, or any other means to revisit a document, the browser first checks to see if it is in cache and will retrieve it from there because it is much faster than retrieving it from the server.
- Cookie - An HTTP cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user's computer by the user's web browser while the user is browsing. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information or to record the user's browsing activity.
- HTML - HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. HTML is the standard markup language for Web pages, which are the building blocks of most web pages.
- Link - A link (short for hyperlink) is an HTML object that allows you to jump to a new location when you click or tap it. Links are found on almost every webpage and provide a simple means of navigating between pages on the web. Links can be attached to text, images, or other HTML elements.
- URL - URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. A URL is nothing more than the address of a given unique resource on the Web (e.g. website, page, or file). In theory, each valid URL points to a unique resource.
