If you’re wondering where all this information comes from, there’s a whole “invisible” side of web browsing. When you click on a link, your web browser not only asks the hosting computer for the web page, but also tells it what computer and web browser you are using; this information is often used to adjust the content of the web page to make it display best on your machine. Also, when you click on a link from a search engine, that search engine tells the web site computer which term you used to find them.
