From browsing ...
My trusty old dictionary defines "browsing" to be "grazing" or "feeding".
The image that comes to mind is of cattle moving slowly to a patch of grass,
grabbing a mouthful of it and chewing on it for a while. And repeating the
procedure over and over again. This image also nicely applies to browsing
the Internet when you're looking for some nourishing location-related content.
You want to go to Paris. So you need a guide to what's going on there, a
map, hotel recommendations, pictures of the area, facts from Wikipedia.
To get all this info, you however have to go to a variety of sites. On each
of them, you have to go through the same, repetitious sequence: you enter
the website, find the search form, enter 'Paris', and then work your way
through the entries for Paris, Texas, Paris French Restaurant and Paris
Hilton to finally get another bit of savory information. Makes you feel
a bit sheepish doesn't it?
