The Internet is the worldwide, publicly accessible network of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP). It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and government networks, which together carry various information and services, such as electronic mail, online chat, file transfer, and the interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web.

There are a number of web browsers to choose from to access and "surf" the internet. Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Netscape Navigator are only some of the many examples of web browsers to choose from.
