The complexities of the web and internet browsers explained in simple English
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between the web and an internet browser, had no idea what a "cookie" is or been afraid to ask how the web actually works?
For many of us, the internet can be complex and difficult to understand but a new guide put together by illustrator Christoph Niemann and internet giant Google helps to demystify the internet and explain commonly used terms in an easy-to-understand way.
The guide is called "20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web" and takes users on a journey of how the web works, from its very beginning to new web technologies expected to arrive in the near future.
"'20 Things' is written by the Chrome team, and continues our tradition of finding new ways to help explain complex but fascinating ideas about technology," explains Google's Product Marketing Manager, Min Li Chan, in a November 19 blog post.
"This handy guide is for those of us who'd like to better understand the technologies we use every day."
