Life without Search Engines

Think for a minute what it would be like if search engines did not exist. People could still use the Internet, of course. But how could you get to the webpage you wanted? Try, for example, to find information about the latest exhibit at the British Museum without using any search tools of any kind (including internal search engines for specific web pages ). Did you use a URL address you had memorized? Did you use any hyperlinks? Currently, the World Wide Web is made up of billions of web pages and that number increases everyday. If we had no tools that allowed us to sort through this vast numbers of documents, how probable is it that you would be able to use your above methods to find everything you need on the World Wide Web?
