Computers are being used everywhere in every field. The development of computer programming and computer technology has given us the cheap and quick method of exchanging information. This method is called as Internet.

"The Internet is not just one thing, it's a collection of things - of numerous communications networks that all speak the same digital language." - James H. Clark
