    People who are just beginning to comprehend the basics of the Internet, many terms in this area are not clear. For example, not everyone will be able to explain what an address bar is, where it is and why it is needed.

    What is the address bar for?

    The address bar is a text field that is located at the very top of the browser. The address bar contains the address of the site or web page on which the user is currently or is going to go.

    • The address bar in each specific browser has its own characteristics; it can be configured in different ways.
