Web browsers are complex pieces of software with rich functionality. Although browser designers make every effort to produce user-friendly software, users still need time to fa-miliarize themselves with each web browser and its particular features. Answers to fre-quently asked questions about using the web browser are included with FF2 and IE7, as well as most other browsers. This information is accessible through the built-in help fea-ture available in the Help menu (Figs. 2.14–2.15).



A good source for locating help about a specific feature is the Contents and Index menu item in IE7 and Help Contents in FF2, both accessible through the Help menu. IE’s help menu can also be accessed by clicking the Help option on the toolbar’s chevron. When these items are selected, the browser’s help dialog is displayed. In IE7, the Contents tab organizes the help topics by category, the Index tab contains an alphabetical list of Help topics and the Search tab provides capabilities for searching the help documents. The Favorites tab allows users to maintain a list of frequently used help topics. FF2’s Help window provides a search box and an expandable table of contents for browsing.
