Arduino visit a website?

Hello guys,

I have an arduino UNO R3 and an ESP8266 wifi shield. The wifi shield I have is this:

What I am trying to do is have arduino visit a specific webpage when an event is true.

for example: if(a == 1) { //visit the website }

I cant seem to find any information about the wifi shield I have. Anyone have any experience with this shield?

What do you mean "visit a website"? Do you mean downloading some information? Or sending data to a server?

Take a look at my Beginner's guide to the ESP8266. Or if you want to use AT commands (I'm not a huge fan), you could do that as well.
