Internet Tools Information

Tools used for information retrieval; primarily where the user, with client software, retrieves information from a host or server


Software tools that are used to get a specific piece of information or perform a specific, focused task


Applications, clients and servers; enable storage of information on servers for access by users who have client software for a range of purposes more complex than just utility tasks


Obsolete or old tools no longer used; these tools were introduced and used, for the most part, extensively during their heyday (except WAIS which was never used extensively); now, information about them is valuable for historical reasons; many of these tools introduced functionality that is used today in other software

Software used for a person communicating with another person or with a small group of people


Software used for group and large group communication, some of which is open (in which anyone with client software can join)


Sites that demonstrate the Internet's use as a means of mass communication; these lists link you to resources to find Internet-based mass media or streaming media outlets
