The internet has been expanded upon heavily, providing much more use to the player than before. Unlike GTA IV's websites, where most of them didn't feature any kind of interactivity, every single website in GTA V has, at least, one kind of minigame or functionality that the player can interact with. The browser bar is now more complete, featuring forward and back buttons and a browser history button. The Internet can be accesed via computers and now, also from each of the protagonist's phone, making it possible for the player to browse through the in-game internet at any part of the map. Provided that the player is a passenger at the time, they can also access the internet through the computers in a Swift Deluxe or Luxor Deluxe.
There are many websites in GTA V, each with its own function, some can be used to buy vehicles, like Legendarymotorsport.net or elitastravel.net, others to buy propertys, like Dynasty8realestate.com, however this last function is only available in Grand Theft Auto Online. If the player wishes to go to a property they have found online, the website has a button that will set the GPS to guide the player towards the property.
Stock market is available in the game too. Both bawsaq.com and Lcn-exchange.com are stock market websites where the player can browse and purchase stocks. The stocks are dynamic and will increase and decrease, which affects the amount of money the player receives.
