What is an internet browser?
Day after day, for many years now, we did not hesitate to go on the Internet, check email, communicate with people, read news … And we don’t attend the thought of the browser we use, and some will look at I have huge, uncomprehending eyes, realizing that I didn’t even think about what a browser is and why it is eaten. And we will try to tell you about what is it all the same – the Internet browser.
Let’s start with the definition: the browser, or the so-called web browser is a special program that allows you to browse certain sites. How does this work? The browser sends a request to the server to receive any information or data, interprets all this in a special way and shows you the already familiar web page, such as you always used to see it. The creation and interpretation of webpages is determined by industry standards, which are approved by an international standardizing organization.
Observers appeared almost at the very beginning of the development of the Internet and over time they spread more and more widely on the Internet. To date, you will not find a single personal computer without an Internet browser, and this is completely independent of whether or not it is connected to any Internet network. Currently, Internet observers have settled not only on PCs, but also on mobile phones, because technology does not stand still, they always go forward! Now, whatever you have in your hands, be it a smartphone, a communicator or just an ordinary cell phone, you will almost always find an Internet browser there.
Well, at the moment, it concerns Internet browsers on a PC – they are a fairly powerful application that can provide you with almost any kind of interaction with the world wide web. Earlier, when browsers were not able to display graphical information in the Internet, their text versions were developed and released. Some of these versions have survived to our days and they can be used as additional browsers for specific tasks, for example, to save traffic.
If we talk about the number of web browsers themselves, then they are, in fact, a great many, but there are 5 of the most popular. The first is Internet Explorer, but I honestly don’t understand why. Internet Explorer is most susceptible to all kinds of viruses. Most likely, its popularity is due to the fact that on all computers with the Windows Internet Explorer operating system is a basic program. Next, in second place is Mozilla Firefox, also a very well-known program, I personally give my preference to it. Unlike the previous version, Mozilla Firefox is at a lower risk of infecting our computer with any viruses. In the third place of honor – Opera, I can’t say a lot about it, in general, very satisfactory, still better than Explorer. Opera also has a convenient bookmark bar. The next is Google Chrome, one of its interesting features, which attract users, is the lack of a toolbar, which allows you to browse sites on almost the entire screen, all the buttons are very compact. And completes our top browser such as Safari, it is a basic application in the operating system Mac OS X.
Each of the Internet browsers has its own advantages and disadvantages, which cannot be described in one article. Therefore, on the following links you can read everything yourself and choose a more suitable browser for yourself!
