You retrieve pages from Web servers every day, but may not have thought about how the information gets to your computer. We'll look at that information flow in this presentation. The presentation covers no skills, but we will learn what a Web client or "browser" is and what a Web server is. The ideas of clients and servers are central to all Internet applications, and Web client programs are often referred to as Web "browsers" because we use them to browse around the Web. We'll also cover network connections, URLs, mobile clients and peer-to-peer applications.
