Hi,

A seems fine to me. The 'speaker' is thinking of the Internet as a 'place'.

B suggests the speaker is thinking of the Internet as a 'tool'.

Both are OK.

Best wishes, Clive

My dictionary:

"You can find all kinds of information on the internet."
"Do you have access to the Internet ?"

Cambridge online dictionary:

"I found out about the bombings from/on the Internet."
"I learned about it on the Internet."
Mithunbarik,

That is in the title of the article. Try finding "in the internet" where it is used within the body of the article. Titles are often misleading, especially if they want to attract attention.
