These clients on the inside network have a NAT translation, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are allowed access. They now need a rule to allow them to access the outside network (the Internet). That rule will also allow the return traffic to come back in.
To make a rule to allow these users port 80 (Web browsing), you would type this:
PIX1(config)# access-list outbound permit tcp 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 any eq 80 PIX1(config)# access-group outbound in interface inside PIX1(config)#
Note that PIX access lists, unlike router access lists, use a normal subnet mask, not a wildcard mask.
With this access list, you have restricted the inside hosts to accessing Web servers only on the outside network (routers).
