    "I go to the library to research information about ________."

    The term "surf" is usually used in reference to scanning the internet for information or simply looking for something of interest.

    "It took me a long time to get back home while it was raining heavily."
    Is it "while" or should it be "because"?

    And for this sentence:

    Since recently, we didn`t have a computer at home. Now (remove comma) we have three.

    i think it willshould be "we havn`t have". Is it right?
    Please see the amendments above. You need to concentrate on your use of punctuation and capital letters. Your posts are very hard to read.

    In answer to your questions, the sentences should read:

    It took me a while to get back home because it was raining heavily.
    Until recently, we didn't have a computer at home. Now we have three.
