What is a browser?
A browser is a software program that acts as an interface between the user and the World Wide Web’s technology. In the client/server model, the browser functions as a client, sending requests for information and displaying the information for the user. Browsers can be text-based or graphical and can make the Internet easier and more intuitive to use.
There are many different types of browsers. A text-based browser shows a user text only. A graphical browser allows the user to see more of what the WWW has to offer such as graphics, photographs and multimedia.
