In my opinion the Internet is the greatest time saver people ever invented. First of all, the Internet allows people to search important information they need really fast. For example, if a person has any question, he or she goes to ask it in the Internet and get an answer right away. People do not have to go to libraries anymore.  Secondly, nowadays the Internet is really educational in terms of lot of people study different subjects distantly. For instance, there are many webinars that teach students mathematics, biology and other academic subjects. They do not need to waste a lot of time going somewhere to take lessons.

At the same time, there are people who believe that the Internet kills a lot of time. They say that youth surf there for hours chatting, watching useless things and get nothing in return.

I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. There are people who waste there time in the web but they are more exception than the rule. Furthermore, surfing in the net sometimes is really relaxing that is often good for teens overloaded with homework.

In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing view points on this issue. At first sightthe Internet is a big waste of time, but in actual fact it can save people a lot of time and efforts. Thus, I strongly believe that the Internet is not a time waster.
