The World Wide Web is based on a communications network called the Internet. Like any communications channel, it can occasionally become busy, resulting in delays in getting to the pages you want. When the delay is too long, or if the material probably isn't worth the wait to get to, click the stop icon.

There are two basic types of delays. First, the network or place where the pages are stored can be very busy. There is no remedy other than choosing a better time to access the site. Late afternoons and early evening are generally peak usage hours.

Second, the network may be OK but the size of the web pages containing images, sound or movie clips, can take too long to get. Here only a faster connection will help. You can get a faster connection by upgrading your modem or switching to a machine that is directly wired to the Internet.
