Main Activity

A web browser is like a magic window that lets you see and explore the internet. You use it by clicking on the little picture of the browser on your computer or phone, and then typing in the name of a website you want to visit. Once you hit enter, the browser will take you to that website and you can look at pictures, read stories, and play games!

These are the common web browser buttons. See if you can match the names to the icons.
