The Internet, an international network of networks, offers individuals and organizations a fast electronic way to communicate with each other. The Internet provides a quick and easy access to the exchange of information, to the sharing of software, and a way of joining discussion groups on every subject imaginable. Internet applications are increasingly graphics-oriented. Access to information on the Internet has become easier and more efficient since the appearance of the Mosaic and Netscape applications. The Internet plays an important role in our worldwide electronic information society today.
