Web Browsers

A web browser (commonly referred to as a browser) is a software application for accessing information on the World Wide Web. Each individual web page, image, and video is identified by a distinct Uniform Resource Locator(URL), enabling browsers to retrieve these resources from a web server and display them on a user's device.

This acts as your door to the internet. Browsers are all slightly different, but they all allow you to 'surf' the internet and access different websites.

There have been many different web browsers that have come and gone over the years. The first, named WorldWideWeb (later changed to Nexus), was invented by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990. However, the first graphical browser and widely used browser that help bring popularity to the Internet was NCSA Mosaic.

When you first open your Internet browser, it will load your homepage or show a start screen with your favorite pages. Once open, you can browse the Internet by following any of the hyperlinks or use a search engine to search for what you would like to find.
