The address toolbar shows the URL (uniform resource locator) address of the web page you are browsing.

The parts of the address are similar to the parts of a mailing address. Each individual part tells you some information about the web address just like the name, street address, city, state and zip tells you information for a mailing address on an envelope.

  • "HTTP://" is the standard protocol to tell your computer you will be viewing a web page.

  • The "WWW" represent world wide web server.

  • The "Registered Domain Name" similar to a person's name in a mailing address.

  • The Top Level Domain come next and tell what type of page you are viewing. Here are some examples:

.gov - Government agencies

.edu - Educational institutions

.org - Organizations (nonprofit)

.mil - Military

.com - commercial business

.net - Network organizations

.ca - Canada

.th - Thailand

  • Then may come several words separated by slashes. These are the folder locations of the web pages for the web site you are viewing in your browser.

There is also a drop down arrows at the end of the address bar. When you click on this drop down arrow, you get a list of recently visited web pages. Instead of clicking the back button several times, you can just click on the page you want and return there immediately.
