"Mathematica uses the Internet for a number of operations. For example, the Import function can read from a URL, and the Web Services Link can load and call standard web services. Mathematica 6 supports a major new innovation called "paclets", which are units of functionality that can be updated on demand via the internet. The paclet system is currently used to enable automatic updates to Mathematica's comprehensive documentation suite, and also to support numerous integrated data sources."
