Web Browsers

Need of the hour?

When we need to connect with what other people have shared their stuff in the format of an html webpage, or

if we need to get information from a dynamic web portal

That is when we need access to a web browser

 

Definition?

A web browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web and/or Local Intranet over the http protocol. An information resource is identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and may be a web page, image, video, or other piece of content. Hyperlinks present in resources enable users easily to navigate their browsers to related resources. A web browser can also be defined as an application software or program designed to enable users to access, retrieve and view documents and other resources on the Internet / Intranet.

Although browsers are primarily intended to use the World Wide Web, they can also be used to access information provided by web servers in private networks or files in file systems. The major web browsers are Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari.
