What is a web browser?
A web browser displays web pages on your computer screen so that you can view information.
If you imagine that a web page is like a magazine, then the browser makes enables the pages to display on all types of computer.
So much more than a magazine page
The clever thing is that your browser lets you:
- view text and images
- copy text and images into a document or e-mail
- click on links to new pages (browsing or surfing)
- watch videos
- listen to audio.
