Browsing websites

by morninglory / July 16, 2006 12:53 AM PDT

This might sound crazy but here goes: When I want to go to a new website do I need to go back to home first? I have been doing this almost every time I switch sites but don't know why. In other words, do I need to close one site to open another? Say I want to go from Yahoo! to my local newspaper; can I just open the newspaper's page without going back to my home page. Thanks for any help!

You can also add the web sites that you go to often to your "Favorities". Just go to that web site, after it opens, click on Favorities and then click "Add to Favorities". Then you just click on Favorites and pick one and go to it without having to type the "www" thing.
Good luck,

Nope, you don't need to go back home, close your browser, or anything else in order to go to the next site. Just go to, browse the headlines, play a few games, and then either type in the URL of the next site you want to go to or select it from your favorites/bookmarks. There's no benefit to going back home first.


P.S. There's no such thing as a crazy question, only crazy people, and that's a title I proudly hold. Happy

Thanks you guys, I figured I didn't need to return to "home" after browsing a site just to go to another page; I still find myself doing it some, out of habit I guess, but hey! Habits are made to be broken (or is that rules.....?). Anyway, thanks for your help.
