AOL's Web browser technology makes accessing the World Wide Web seamless, simple, and fast. With one click, you can go from your
favorite AOL forum to the Web and back again. Keep your favorite spots on
the Web in the same place as your favorite spots on AOL with AOL's Favorite
Places, and jump to a URL straight from our keyword screen.
We've added an extra layer of compression to our Web servers so you can
get your Web pages 35 percent faster. Our ingenious system of "caching" helps speed
up your surfing even more by storing popular pages on our own computers. And cached pages are updated every few minutes.
America Online gives new members and savvy members alike a place to turn
when they're having problems with the Internet. Our Internet Help
forum answers all of your Internet questions.
Our staff of CyberJockies help manage all of our Internet Connection message
boards and chat rooms with their expert help and winning personalities. And
we've got the Web Diner for help in
constructing Web pages.
AOL's Newsgroup Reader
America Online's Usenet news reader gives you instant access to more than 25,000 discussions
happening on the Internet right now. If names like comp.sys.ibm.pc.misc
mystify you, set your preferences to see group names in complete English
words and get the translation: discussion about IBM personal computers.
Our parental controls let you decide which newsgroups, if any, you want
your children to see. Block newsgroups by the words contained in their names.
You can even block downloads of all binary posts so that your kids can't get
their hands on graphics, sounds, or software.
Point and click your way to downloading software and text files from
computers all over the world! AOL's FTP tool makes it easier to do it than
to figure out what it stands for. It's easy, but it's also flexible. You can
FTP to a place where you own your own account, if you wish.
AOL gives their members 2 Mb of FTP space per screen name for a total of 10
Mb of space per account for free. We dare any ISP to top that. Use the FTP
space for private files or public files, like a Web site. You decide!
Gopher lives on at AOL. Browse through Gopher sites on your own, or read
our carefully prepared reviews of the best Gopher resources on the Net. We
point to the best Gopher directories so you get the information you're
looking for as quickly as possible.
