Web Browser

i want to discuss about what i know about web browser.

Web Browser is  a software application used to locate, retrieve and also display content on the World Wide Web, including Web pages, images, video and other files. Nowadays, browsers are fully-functional software suites that can interpret and display HTML Web pagesapplicationsJavaScriptAJAX and other content hosted on Web servers

i will give you three top famous browser :

Internet Explorer
 Internet Explorer(IE)

For years the most popular browser, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer’s rate of use has increasingly decreased through the years. However, its newest version, Internet Explorer 9, features some interesting things, and make it worthy of consideration again: It is faster, has a cleaner interface, smaller notifications, security is upgraded, and features tab isolation (so that not all your tabs crash when one does), a feature first seen in Google’s Chrome. It also features one box for both addresses and web search, again something Chrome started doing, and a download manager. It supports HTML5, CSS3 and SVG. The downside is that it only works for Windows Vista and Windows 7.


In 2003 Mozilla’s browser, Firefox, started competing with Internet Explorer, becoming more popular than it quickly. A cross-platform browser, it works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, and it is one of the most standard-compliant browsers. Among its most appealing characteristics are a better rendering of the web pages compared to Internet Explorer, add-ons and extensions to personalize your searches, session restoration, a download manager and pop-up blocking. It also features the all-in-one address and search bar, although it also has a separate search bar that you can personalize to browse in Google, Yahoo, Bing, or even other websites, like dictionaries, Wikipedia, etc. It supports HTML5, CSS3 and it enables developers to create full-screen video content and apps.


Launched by Google in 2008, Chrome was meant to rethink browsing completely. It is the most used browser today, and its popularity continues to grow, as it has lived up to the users’ expectations. Chrome was the first browser to introduce tab isolation and one box for both addresses and searches, and it started as a faster and cleaner browser. Aside from all of this, it also includes some useful features, like a quick calculation system included in the address bar, or drag and drop downloads and searches, as well as developer resources. It also enables multiple profiles in one window, and allows you to access your printer from any enabled web app through Google Cloud Print.
