Fun on the Web Dec 3, 2011 Web Surfing Helpers

Have you ever thought about how we surf the web?

Before Google was a verb, there were other search engines: Yahoo, Excite, Ask Jeeves, Lycos, and so many more. For a long list of search engines including those that are topic specific you can look here:

There were Meta Search engines like
* Web Crawler and
* Dogpile

You could look at specific references like:
* Youtube for video
* Wikipedia
* RefDesk
* Snopes to combat Hoaxes

You could create your own home page

or in some cases long onto another home page. Allmyfaves, a home page started in 2007 is still bringing you the most interesting and refreshing information you can find on the Internet.


Hope you enjoyed my fun on the web today!

If you know someone who would enjoy Fun on the Web,

Thanks and have a great day!
