A '''web page''' (or '''webpage''') is a specific collection of information provided by a [[website]] and displayed to a [[user (computing)|user]] in a [[web browser]]. A website typically consists of many web pages [[hyperlink|linked]] together in a coherent fashion. The name "web page" is a metaphor of [[Page (paper)|paper pages]] bound together into a [[book]].
 
== Navigation==
 
Each web page is identified by a distinct [[URL|Uniform Resource Locator]] (URL). When the user inputs a URL into their browser, that page's elements are downloaded from [[web server]]s. The browser then [[browser engine|transforms]] all of the elements into an interactive visual representation on the user's device.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://taligarsiel.com/Projects/howbrowserswork1.htm|title=Behind the scenes of modern web browsers|publisher=Tali Garsiel|accessdate=2018-04-21}}</ref>
 
If the user [[point and click|clicks]] or [[touchscreen|taps]] a [[hyperlink|link]] to another page, the browser repeats this process to display the new page, which could be part of the current website or a different one.
