|How do I find...||Finding information on the web is more difficult than it needs to be. However, there are
three sources of help,
search engines - index web sites and try to match your keywords to entries in their database,
directory pages - sort web sites into categories and allow you to drill down to the article you're looking for, and
downloadable software - searches existing databases and provides a list of web pages.
These are our favourites.
|The first two have no adverts on them, the others have relatively few compared to the more well known sites.||www.google.com
|Download and install webferret, then enter your keywords. It will return up to 500 web pages if available.||www.webferret.com|
A mine of information
