Web browser basics and how to use your browser toolbar effectively - Part I
Pro's & con's to Web Browsers
The web is a place for many things today, and we are all very fortunate to have such a resource to turn to for almost anything. When a person first logs onto their computer they are normally greeted with cool logo's from that particular pc manufacturer who devoted their time, skills, and brilliant mind powers of a cooperate organizations brain food, to bring about such a useful tool to us all, anywhere from basic essential needs in communications with others to being messaged via email this is where technology has brought us all today.
We are at the verge of a superb heightened state of alertness in dealing with humanity as a whole. All of this is also due to the connectedness people now have, while being behind these cool machines, and all the newer latest gadgets.
What many people have no clue about is how certain things work for them, and how certain other things dealing with these smart technologies do not. This has posed a great deal of trouble for the average online user who simply wants to be either entertained by these new digital products, or is seeking some sort of relevant use to them in their life, and in dealing with what interest them.
Today's Online Life
Today I will be embarking on an adventurous journey, and campaign to help all those people who feel lost, dazed and confused due to an information overload, and for those who simply are looking for guidance to understand a simple benefit from something such as a web browser toolbar, let alone be able to know everything that a web browser is fully capable of doing for them.
Some people have no clue that if they we're to study about such a topic, it can take them from having nothing at all, to becoming extremely aware about the new age of digital everything, and can potentially make all the difference for them if they get a much better grasp on it all.
A great deal of people have no idea how a web browser works
Web browsers have a history of their own, and the first thing a person must know is which one's they have the option of using, and then out of those, which do they prefer to use, based on the factors of the likelihood of browser vulnerabilities, which generally lead to their information on their pc becoming in danger of intrusion from the Internet communications itself, which that individual may have actually been responsible for unleashing onto their computer system without knowing.
Since many people are unaware of the pro's and cons to having a web browser, and which one's are the least used or least popular amongst avid users, and those which pose the greatest threat of using, people also don't understand what ways they can benefit from such a knowledge, and how it will change their outlook on the overall usage of this web technology we have at our disposal today.
Proven Professional Skills Helps
I'm a computer technician, a certified electronics technician, a calibration expert, and I also had attended 4 years of college for civil engineering, as well as have 10 years of Naval training on my belt, so I can say I've learned a great deal about the usage of computers, since each phase of my life I've had to adapt to them, besides all the professional training courses I've received in years past. With that said lets move on to the definition of a web browser, and how it all works for the average online user, web surfer, and advanced users.

Definition of a web browser & RSS feed intro
According to wikipedia a web browser is defined as "A web browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web", link ref wikipedia commons.
Based on that definition a person can easily get confused as to how a web browser can work today, I say this because there's a great deal of hidden things, functions, and abilities that aren't described in such a definition, and left up to that person to discover on their own, or with the assistance of someone who's much more knowledgeable in that area.
I have learned many uses of a web browser merely by trying to play around with it all, and by trying both my mouse functions while hovering over many parts of the web browser, both the right click button, and that of the left click mouse button. You would be surprised how many hidden menu's actually pop up after clicking the right mouse button, and what functions you can initiate by clicking the left one.
In terms of what a web browser toolbar is, it affords the user a menu listing across the top of the web browser which allows for storage of RSS feeds, which are listings of the web locations from which the person chose to save from and add to their web browser toolbar. This can be done in a very simple way and I will be providing the steps to do so, I'll also get into a brief overview of how to understand what an RSS Feed does, and how it can help anyone who learns of its usage.
