Using Safari for Internet    
Going on the Internet has quickly become a way of life! If you are new to using the Internet, just follow these few steps and you’ll be searching the web in no time! First off, you need to have an Internet connection. You can either order DSL or Dial up for your home through your phone or cable company. Your DSL or Dial up will come with set up instructions. Once you’ve got it set up, go ahead and open up Safari. It’s the compass icon on your dock, or in your applications folder. Safari is Apple’s web browser application. There are other web browser options, which are explored in other videos, but for now, let’s talk about some of the basics of Safari. It’s very easy to use. On the top is the address bar. Here you can type in a website URL, for example, www.gmail.com, hit enter and you’ll be taken to gmail. Over on the top right you will find the google search box. Just click in there and type in anything you want to search for. For example, shoes, hit enter and here we have a search of everything on the Internet related to shoes. Over here is the refresh button, click it if you want to reload a page. The plus button is for adding a website to your favorites. If you click on the big A it makes the text bigger and if you click on the little A it makes the text smaller. On the top left are the forward and back buttons for navigating. These are just some of the basics for getting you started with the Internet. Happy surfing!
