General_1: Introductions, Search engines, Central sites

Introductions to the World Wide Web
  • overview internet:     Una Smith, Yale, USA: 'A biologist's guide to internet resources'. Comprehensive overview and introduction to the world wide web tailored to the interests of biologists.
  • overview WWW:     Overview over World Wide Web basics. Provides very general detailed information for those who have used the web before and need specific information and those who just want to quickly go through some of the Web terminology.
  • browsers:     Links to various WWW browsers (programs to access the Web) and 'plug-ins' (modules adding functionality to your browser, e.g., display of protein 3D structures)
  • dictionary computing:     Free On-Line Dictionary of Computing is a searchable dictionary of acronyms, jargon, programming languages, tools etc. to do with computing.
