    What do you like most about the web?

    Web surfing, research, networking, etc..........  Explain anything you like most about using the Internet today, and maybe even share your take on the difference from using it like 5-10 years back if you wish.

    The freedom that our Congress and the Entertainment industry are threatening to take away through laws like SOPA and PROTECT IP. With censorship starting to get a full head of steam up, it's inevitable that our journalistic freedoms will slowly be taken away though...sadly.

    I like the fact that practically every kind of information is at ur finger tips thanks to the net. This makes researching easy and one wonders how people managed before the Internet.

    That I can work and study from home so I can raise my children from home during their formative years. While the web does not necessarily make things easier, it does make them possible. So opportunities that would not be an option before are not available for people like me that want to do it all!

    I appreciate its ease of use... and the speed with which we can use it today,... it wasn't half as fast in the early 2000's! I remember putting a page to load, and then going into the kitchen to get a snack and maybe get something else done, and coming back to find the page still loading! But at least it wasn't stressful, like nowadays, because I expected it to be horrendously slow. Being homeschooled (and an uber nerd), I do appreciate the wealth of information we have access to now as well.

    I love the anonymity of the internet, I love that we can get on here and be as free as possible without worry of undue judgment.

    The sad thing is that this could change soon with that bill that is going to allow the internet to be censored via governmental control. SOPA is what it is called and it is under the false name "Stop Online Piracy Act". We all know it wont stop piracy and all it is going to do is take away more of our online privacy.

    Sickening to me, but perhaps we can show enough frustration about this to keep them from passing it.

    I like surfing latest technology and sports related news.And I also like to take information which is purely conceptual,so that I wont need to read it by going to library or buying a book.

    I like it because there's so much information that there is no limit to what you can learn here and how far your horizon can expand. I can only imagine how smart the next generations can grow up if they start learning while they are still kids (if they read and learn on the internet, and not just play games).

    Oh and also with the web you can cheat when solving crossword puzzles! (J/K)

    The unlimited options of finding things or staying in contact with people I care for despite long distances!

    There is nothing wrong with the web itself. Its the misuse of it that causes problems. Its just like a car. people have done wrong things with cars and even guns but the guns or cars themselves have no mind of their own. Its man that causes problems.

    The ability to communicate with the world! I would be lost without my fellow online peers...

    5 years ago I was running on a internet plan with about 25 KBps, made me want to tear my hair out.

    Free access to information, communication, knowledge, entertainment and social networks at work, home or where ever you can get online. Making the most out of your questions or your quests. Making ignorance a momentary lapse on your way to expanding your knowledge. Vast supply of knowledge at your fingertips to expand your own horizons. Incredibly, the most useful resource ever by far and growing daily is the web.

    Everything is a mouse click away, my surf report (beats driving down to the beach 30mins away from me like it was done back in the day just to get there and its flat.), if I'm sick I can buy groceries and have them delivered to my door, and if there is a dvd or game I really want but can't find, I just buy it online!

    Not to mention great communities like this one, full of knowledge and advice, its just awesome!

    I like most about web is that it acts as information provider. You can find anything on web related to anything.

    Internet is an amazing tool if used right. It can benefit people's lives in so many ways. It's great for learning, studying, research, job search, quick shopping, paying bills, interacting with others, online business opportunities etc. Although at the same time we need to make sure we balance our lives right way, so that we enjoy other things life has to offer, such values as spending enough time with family and friends.
