Difference to the «classic homepage»:
- a normal internet presence offers its information to the target group as permanently as possible and updates pages directly
- Blog readers are usually only interested in new posts and use a blog similar to a daily newspaper
- only if an older post becomes interesting again due to current events, the blogger (that's what the author is called) writes a new post and links it to the old one
Some website owners have a blog on their usual website that deals with current topics, while the rest of the website provides the rarely changing information pages.

A web browser (commonly referred to as a browser) is a software application for accessing information on the World Wide Web. When a user requests a web page from a particular website, the web browser retrieves the necessary content from a web server and then displays the page on the user's device.
A web browser is not the same thing as a search engine, though the two are often confused. For a user, a search engine is just a website that stores searchable data about other websites. However, to connect to a website's server and display its web pages, a user must have a web browser installed.
Web browsers are used on a range of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. In 2019, an estimated 4.3 billion people used a browser. The most used browser is Google Chrome, with a 64% global market share on all devices, followed by Safari with 18%.
