Well many of us try to find our day to day solutions in different search engines available on the internet. But the matter of concerned is that how many of us are able to find the desired solution of our problems? Many times if we are lucky then we get the desired output. But sometimes we are unable to find the exact solution. Instead of finding a solution to a problem we come across other solutions of a question different to our problems. But in some cases it is very useful for us. We are able to know different thing which is very new for us. So perhaps this is called internet surfing. However we are still away from our solutions!

For the most part, I find the answer or solution I was looking for, but sometimes it takes more research than other times. Sometimes I just give up because I don't want to spend the time researching.

Usually, yes, at least I'm getting better. When I started using the internet I wasn't really very good at finding what I need, but practice helps here too.

Of course the internet cannot solve all of our problems, but very often it does give very useful information. One must realize, however, that much of what you read on line is someone's opinion and so it should be taken with a grain of salt.

It is estimated that there are around 182 million websites and your success will depend on how correctly you feed your search engine. It has nothing to do with luck but one needs to have time to search for information and the correct wording of the search phrase or whatever. I have had a lot of success in so many spheres and I am grateful for this system that I find I know much more than what I learnt in school and college.

if you are using the search engine as your solution finder, then you will have a hard time finding the solution because the search engines function as "information provider" not "solution provider" even though some solutions can be found from information.. but you will get rough solution, not exact solution. If you are looking answers to a problem in the internet, then the very first thing you should do is to find the definitions/functions of the problem then you can decipher the problems to your own solutions. that's what I usually do. sometimes you need to join forums to find your answers though

Well, most of the time I can find what I need on internet if they are mainly technical difficulties. But internet is not almighty, it cannot give us the answer we want all the time. At such times, we have to find other ways to seek an answer. But all in all, internet is useful for us because it provides various information from which we are likely to get profit.

Well i agree with you. It needs a lot of patience, because sometimes it is so eye straining and/or u end up feeling dizzy or sleepy. I need coffee when im surfing or a bottle of cola to keep me wide and awake. But surfing the internet is still very helpful.

hello! most of the things i am searching on the net are work related. luckily with great patience i get what i want. LOL. i think we just need to try and try to search. sometimes we can not get the exact answer but yet it still helpful for us. we are very lucky nowadays because of the technology we have right now. its easy for us to do researches as long as we have computers and the net connection with us.

I have always found what i was looking for maybe i guess I just haven't had a problem so unique that i haven't been able to not find the solutions or whatever i was looking for. but there have been times where i've had to dig a little bit in order to find what I was looking for but I've always found it with a 100 pct accuracy so far.

Most of the time.. yes. But it really depends on the information that you are looking for. If it has something to do with school.. that it might be a little harder to find. If its something that your just interested in, like one of your hobbies than no. Its not really that hard. But it certainly is odd not to find something that your looking for. It gives you this odd feeling about the internet when you realize that you won't find that one desired thing/info/etc that you are looking for.. heh.. :)
