This paper discusses the importance of being familiar with the correct way of browsing and evaluating information on the Internet. While searching for information we need to know how to use the browsing tools, the most common used of which are directories, browsers and meta-search engines, as well as their options. Besides that, it is important to know about the methods and techniques of browsing, how to use key words which will lead to the most relevant results, how to use Boolean operators, quotation marks or wildcards. When we get to the information we've been looking for we need to know how to validate it, both technically and critically, and how to estimate itsconfidentiality. It's difficult to talk about browsing information on the Internet without mentioning Google, the most widely used Internet browser there is, which definitely works to deserve its status. In the final chapter of the paper the topic is the widespreadavailability of information, which is definitely a benefit, but which does not come without a number of negative sides as well. There are numerous discussions about the effect the Internet has on human brain and the ways in which it modifies it. Some uncertainties are reasonable, some are not, but there is no denying that the Internet, with all its good and bad sides, is an integral part of the modern world.
