Global characteristics of the Internet

The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that interchange data by packet switching using the standardized Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP – Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol). The Internet is a "network of networks". It consists of millions of private ,public, academic, business and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by copper wires, fiber-optic cables, wireless connections, and other technologies.

The Internet was developed on base of the ARPANET network, that has been deployed by Advanced Research Projects Agency (known as ARPA) on 1969. In 1983 the TCP/IP (stack of protocols) becomes in-use on majority of the key computers of the ARPANET, boosting development of the Internet.

In computing, a protocol is a convention standard that controls or enables the connection, communication, and data transfer between interacting endpoints. In its simplest form, a protocol can be defined as the rules governing the syntax, semantics, and synchronization of communication. Protocols may be implemented by hardware, software, or a combination of the two.

There are four layers in the TCP/IP stack architecture: link layer, internet layer, transport layer and application layer. The layers near the top are logically closer to the user application, while those near the bottom are logically closer to the physical transmission of the data. Internet protocols defined in the set of documents called RFC (Requests for Comments). RFC documents are enumerated. For example, RFC 793 describes the TCP protocol (the transport layer).

The Link Layer is the networking scope of the local network connection to which a host is attached. This is the lowest component layer of the Internet protocols, as TCP/IP is designed to be hardware independent.

As originally defined, the Internet layer (or Network Layer) solves the problem of getting packets from the source network to the destination network. This generally involves routing the packet across a network of networks, known as an internetwork or internet (lower case).

The Transport Layer's responsibilities include end-to-end message (between interacting processes) transfer capabilities independent of the underlying network, along with error control, fragmentation and flow control.

The Application Layer refers to the higher-level protocols used by most applications for network communication. Examples of application layer protocols include the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Data coded according to application layer protocols are then encapsulated into one or (occasionally) more transport layer protocols (such as the TCP or UDP (User Datagram Protocol)), which in turn use lower layer protocols to effect actual data transfer. There are traditional services in the Internet: file transfer, e-mail, remote terminal emulation. At present time the Internet infrastructure provides many other application services in addition to traditional ones, the most popular of them are: WWW, interactive conferences, news groups, video on demand, electronic payments, IP-telephony, etc.

^ World Wide Web service of the Internet

World-Wide Web (also commonly abbreviated as "the Web", WWW or W3) is the world's most powerful networked information system. It was originally conceived and developed at CERN (European Center Nuclear Research), where large high-energy physics collaborations created a demand for instantaneous information sharing between physicists working in different universities and institutes all over the world. Using concepts from earlier hypertext systems, the WWW was begun in 1992 by the English physicist Tim Berners-Lee, now the Director of the World Wide Web Consortium, and Robert Cailliau, a Belgian computer scientist, while both working at CERN in GenevaSwitzerland. In 1990, they proposed building a "web of nodes" storing "hypertext pages" viewed by "browsers" on a network and released that web in 1992. Now WWW has millions of academic and commercial users.

The terms Internet and World Wide Web are often used in every-day speech without much distinction. However, the Internet and the World Wide Web are not one and the same. The Internet is a global data communications system. It is a hardware and software infrastructure that provides connectivity between computers. In contrast, the Web is one of the services communicated via the Internet. It is a collection of interconnected documents, graphics, multimedia objects and other resources, linked by hyperlinks.

The WWW are based on a set of protocols and agreements that have been implemented in proper software and allowing access to information over the Internet. The main concept of WWW is network distribution of information resources. This approach uses not hierarchy web links between documents via a universal resource locator URL (Uniform Resource Locator), which completely specifies where an identified resource is available on the Internet and the mechanism for retrieving it.

The hypertext WWW services allow any user to add new information, search and view it easily. That’s why the Internet gained popularity in various fields of human activity (education, science, business, politics, etc.).

The WWW service is based on using of the Web servers. The term web server can mean one of two things:

  1. computer program that is responsible for accepting HTTP requests from web clients (user agents such as web browsers), and serving them HTTP responses along with optional data contents, which usually are web pages such as HTMLdocuments and linked objects (images, etc.).

  2. computer that runs a computer program as described above.

The term web client can mean one of two things:

  1. computer program that is responsible for generating HTTP requests, sending it to web servers and handling responses.

  2. computer that runs a computer program as described above.

The most commonly used (but not the only one) type of Web client is the Web browser. A Web browser is a software application which enables a user to display and interact with text, images, videos, music, games and other information typically located on a Web page at a Web site on the World Wide Web or a local area network. Text and images on a Web page can contain hyperlinks to other Web pages at the same or different Web site. Web browsers allow a user to quickly and easily access information provided on many Web pages at many Web sites by traversing these links. Web browsers format HTML information for display, so the appearance of a Web page may differ between browsers.

Viewing a Web page on the World Wide Web normally begins either by typing the URL of the page into a Web browser, or by following a hyperlink to that page or resource. The browser then requests the resource by sending an HTTP request to the Web server at that particular address. In the case of a typical Web page, the HTML text of the page is requested first and parsed immediately by the Web browser, which will then make additional requests for images and any other files that form a part of the page. Having received the required files from the Web server, the browser then renders the page onto the screen as specified by its HTML, or other Web languages. Any images and other resources are incorporated to produce the on-screen Web page that the user sees. Most Web pages will themselves contain hyperlinks to other related pages and perhaps to downloads, source documents, definitions and other Web resources

The additional functionality of Web browser includes creating user-friendly interface, providing necessary means of navigation in Web and appropriate level of security to protect computer resources from malware and hacker attacks.

The HTML file is special text file that contains text and formatting directives (called “tags”) of Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML). To distinguish tags from text information the tag bracketing syntax is used in HTML language. For example:
, .

Browsers receiving HTML-file under commands of HTML language make formatting of interpret text reflect Hypertext information graphics sound video. E.g. text HTML-file which will uploaded between specific above commands browser show at center line of region viewing. In Annex 1 reproduced HTML-file simple Web-page that reflected in viewing area browser windows fig. 4.1.

Hypertext (Hypertext) - this document is organized using the relations between the key elements that allow access to your information in any sequence. This information can be placed in one or in various documents that may be on the same or different computers on the network.

Data exchange between Web-browser and Web-server is using hypertext transfer protocol HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). This application-level protocol of TCP/IP family, which provides WWW service on the Internet.

Addition of HTTP browsers may support other application protocols. This, for example, the following protocols: FTP, Telnet, Gopher, WAIS, Mailto, News and others. They should be used, depending on which object the user will ask for the Internet. For example, to copy files from FTP-servers to the Internet user can use the protocol FTP. To send e-mail can use SMTP.

^ Versions of Web-browsers

Now there are a many count of server and client software for WWW, many of which are distributed free. Among its are browsers that work with ASCII strings or browsers that support graphical user interface. Today the most famous and popular visual media browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Browser Internet Explorer is part of the network operating systems (OS) Windows. Currently developed and uses the next browser versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer: old versions of Internet Explorer: from v.2 to v.5, new browser versions: from Internet Explorer 6 to IE 8 (with multi-tabs window, etc.).

There are versions of the above browsers, Microsoft Internet Explorer with russian and ukrainian interface.

^ Characteristics of Internet Explorer 6

Version of the browser Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 has a functionality of previous versions and, in addition, has some peculiarities. Here are the basic functional features of the browser Microsoft Internet Explorer 6:

1. Improved performance of Web-site review by caching mode while downloading sites in new windows and possible disabling multimedia content loading.

2. Support audio and video formats.

3. Support several different character encodings of Web-pages.

7. Support for Scripting Languages VB Script (Visual Basic Script) and Java Script.

8. Support for frames - the opportunity to share the view on independent dynamic and static parts.

9. Using technology ActiveX, which enhances the browser. For example, the browser Internet Explorer you can open files, Microsoft Office, image formats GIF, JPEG and play video and sound recording format.

Graphic interface of the Internet Explorer 6

The controls of the Internet Explorer 6 conform to the window interface standards of MS Windows. Browser window consists of the following elements: Title bar, Menu, Toolbar, Address bar, View-section, Status bar (see Fig. 4.1). You can delete or modify some of these windows using the "View" menu commands.

Figure 4.1 - The window of Internet Explorer.

All of actions in a browser may be induced by using menu commands or buttons on the toolbar. The English version of the Internet Explorer main Menu has the following command:

­ "File" - to work with files (open, save, print, etc);

­ “Edit” - for the text processing (select, delete, copy, etc);

­ "View" - for removal or changes to the browser window (menu, toolbar, font), and view HTML-source of loaded file;

­ "Favorites" - to work with the favorite pages (add, delete, open);

­ “Service” - configuration settings of the browser program (connections, multimedia, security, etc);

­ "Help" - to obtain information about the program and the textbook on Web.

Toolbar Browser has buttons through which the navigation information on the Internet:

­ "Back" - to go to the previous Web-page;

­ "Forward" - to go to the next Web-page;

­ "Stop" - to stop loading the current Web-page;

­ “Refresh” - to refresh the current Web-page;

­ "Home" - to download the home Web-page;

­ "Search" - to search on the Internet search engine;

­ "Favorites" - to see a list of favorite Web-pages on the browser toolbar;

­ "History" - to see hitstory-log on the browser toolbar;

­ "Mail" - to send or receive mail throw Internet mail server;

­ "Print" - for printing on the printer the current Web-page.

Every Web-page is in its Internet address. To access Web-page in a box "Address" the address bar of your browser to enter from the keyboard of its address (URL) and to press "Enter".
