Web Browsers
In order to surf the web, you need a web browser. Since you are reading this you already have one but you probably want to get a new or more stable one. On this page are download links for the most popular browsers, instructions on how to use them, and commonly encountered problems. It's up to you to choose which browser you want to you want to use.

Basic Browser Usage

"How do I make a bookmark?"

Netscape 3: Click on the Bookmark menu and click on "Add Bookmark". You can also organize your bookmarks by clicking on "Go to Bookmarks", in the window that pops up you will be able to drag and drop the bookmarks to better arrange them to your tastes.

Communicator 4 and above: Click on the Communicator  menu, go to the Bookmarks sub-menu, and click on "Add Bookmark". You can also organize your bookmarks by clicking on "Edit Bookmarks", in the window that pops up you will be able to drag and drop the bookmarks to better arrange them to your tastes.

Internet Explorer 3 and 4: Click on the Favorites menu and click on "Add to Favorites"

 

Common Browser Problems

Here are a few common problems that the user may encounter when cruising the internet. These error messages generally stem from entering the address incorrectly, to a lack of connection, to trouble with the application itself.

"The server doesn't have a DNS entry..."

    Check to see that the address (i.e. http://www.maui.net/help) is typed in correctly. Also, make sure that the computer is indeed connected to the Internet.

"Netscape caused a General Protection Fault"

    This problem can usually be solved by re-installing Netscape or Internet Explorer. Although the problem may be caused by a conflict with another program.

"Error (number)...Forbidden, Permission Denied, File Not On Server, File Not Found, etc."

    Forbidden errors indicated that you do not have permission to view the site. For example, password protected sites.
    Permission Denied Same as above, but you are not in the correct "group" to view this page. Either that or the web designer disable the permissions to lock out the website owner.
    File Not Found on Server Indicates that the site was taken down or that the link is expired.
