Returning to the Home Page
As you browse different Web sites, you can always return to your home or start page for
your browser by clicking the Home button on the Standard Buttons toolbar. Once you
return to the home page, you can begin browsing again by clicking a link on the home
page or by using any of the other available tools provided there.
Reloading a Web Page
When you visit a Web site, your browser loads the Web page from a remote Web server
and stores a copy of the Web page in a folder on the hard drive of your computer. Storing
copies of the Web pages you have visited increases the speed at which the browser can
redisplay these pages as you navigate back and forward between them. When you click
the Refresh button on the Standard Buttons toolbar, the browser contacts the remote Web
server to see if the Web page has changed since it was stored on your computer. If the
Web page has changed, the browser gets the new page from the Web server; otherwise, it
loads the copy that is already stored on your computer.
Stopping a Web Page Transfer
If a Web page seems to be taking a long time to load, you can stop the page from loading
altogether. If you accidentally click a hyperlink that you do not want to follow, you can stop
the transfer of the Web page. To stop the transfer of a Web page from its server, click the
Stop button on the Standard Buttons toolbar. In the case of the Web page taking too long to
transfer, you might want to try reloading the page again by clicking the Refresh button.
