I need to add a few words to the previous post.
Amir said a wrong sentence saying "I know the difference between the Internet and the Web" because it is the same thing.
This is normal... I said "WEB browser" in the end of the other post wanting to write "WWW" and my fingers just slipped.
The Web is the Internet. It is the connection system. The hardware, the connection protocols, the layers and all that stuff. It is simply a network of networks.

The World Wide Web is a connection to the port 80 or 8080 of a web
server that gives the user access to information (eg. html) and this was
not the first protocol being used on the Internet.

Firefox is a Web browser, not a WWW browser. It does not stick to those
connections. You can download a file from an FTP server or ever browse
one (even with username and password) without any extension (like
FireFTP). Those ones just add the possibility to upload files).

If you just browse the WWW. Use Lynx, it's perfect for it :)
