Here ya go Dotan:

I would be obliged to fill in this one if you don't mind. And a little extra I 
see your missing. The extra's are questions I get all the time.

Web Browser: This is software that enables you to browse the World Wide Web. 
There are several different browsers, Firefox, Konqueror, Internet Explorer, 
and Opera to name a few.

Download: This is when you get a file that is stored on the World Wide Web and 
transfer it to your own computer.

Upload: This is when you take a file that is stored on your computer and 
transfer it to the World Wide Web.

Just for Kicks:

Internet Explorer: Why not just hand em your debit card, right along with the 
pin code.

Firefox: Lean mean browsing machine.

Opera: An Internet Explorer wannabe, but makes the thief work a tad bit harder 
for your money. Is also a memory hog, and loves to crash, not just the 
application, but your whole system!

Image Editing Software: A piece of software that can really really enhance the 
looks of that very very ugly guy/gal you thought was beautiful after a couple 

Photoshop: Same as above, except you get ripped off too.

Gimp: The best image editing software you'll ever see. It can turn those 
really really ugly guy's/gal's into super models in no time!
