1. Bill promised to repair the car.

This one is just dandy.

2. Bill promised to me to repair the car.

3. Bill promised me to repair the car.

While these do see some use in English, I'd say that the more common structure is,

S promised me that S ...

# 2 seems emphatic in nature, ie. the speaker is emphasizing the direction of the promise.

=

she is surfing the net
she is surfing on the net

Maybe when you say "surfing the net", it means something like "raiding the net", because she is there to collect precise informations.
Whereas "surfing on the net" is a more idle occupation, she's ON the surface of things, doesn't need to dive in to get anything.
