California, Nov 20: The technology giant Google Inc has started to teach the masses about the basics of internet through a new online guidebook, which was released on Friday, Nov 19.

The new HTML 5-based online guidebook titled '20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web', was released to mark the 20th anniversary of the proposal for World Wide Web released by Sir Tim-Berners Lee, the founder of the web.

The new interactive online guide will describe complex but fascinating ideas about technology. The book, written by Chrome team, gives the step-by-step explanation of the Web and how it works.

The new online book also describes about topics like cloud computing, Web apps, Internet Cookies, Web programming languages, browsers, privacy, security and open source.

"We built '20 Things' in HTML5 so that we could incorporate features that hearken back to what we love about books, feeling the heft of a book"s cover, flipping a page or even reading under the covers with a flashlight," describes Google in a blogpost.

"In fact, once you"ve loaded '20 Things' in the browser, you can disconnect your laptop and continue reading, since this guidebook works offline. As such, this illustrated guidebook is best experienced in Chrome or any up-to-date, HTML5-compliant modern browser," Google added.

The new book was developed in collaboration with illustrator Christoph Niemann.
