Questions

1. How do you bookmark a webpage so that you can find it again in cyberspace? (aka "Add to Favourites")

 

*Go to Bookmarks, Bookmark this Page or Press Crtl + D

*In Firefox you simply choose bookmark and 'add to bookmarks'. You can then make subfiles and save them there, keeping your bookmarks(somewhat) organized.


2. How do you save a page on your hard disk so that you can go back

to it without being connected to the Web? (4 options in IE).

 

*I'm not sure about this one. If I download something, it is saved under 'downloads' until I clear them- this is under 'tools'. Is this what you mean?

 

*File, Save Page As

Right click, save page as

Ctrl + S

??

 

 

*I opened my IE and looked under "Save as". There are 4 options and I saved my webpage in all of them to see what happened. These are my results:

 

1) As full webpage: you get the html file and the image folder

2) As webfile (only one file) .

3) Only HTML

4) Textfile

 

In cases 1 and 2, you can see the complete webpage with all its images and links (don't work of course). File 2 is heavier than 1.

In case 3 I got the text and format of the webpage but no images. File 3 is much smaller than 1 or 2.

In case 4, the lightest file of all, I got only the text. Not attractive at all, but useful when you want to save and edit long texts.


3. How can you find a certain word in a whole page with just a couple

of clicks?

*Look under 'Edit' and then choose, find in this page, or just use ctrl+F and at the bottom of the page you can type the word you are looking for.


4. How can you share a webpage with friends?

 

*You can add the link to delicous or blink

*it's possible to send the link by selecting 'File' and then 'Send link'
