If you go online using a Web browser alone, you're only minimally equipped for the Internet. A Web browser by itself can take you only so far. It can't help you do extensive research, for example, or play video clips on its own.
To make the most of your online adventure, you need to stock up on an assortment of plug-ins, add-ons, and stand-alone tools. Whatever you do, don't leave your home page without them!
