What Is My Browser

What is my Browser? It is also one of a question that is quite common in these days’ computer newbies and internet users. A “Browser” is basically software app that helps user access the Internet, visit webpages using the computer. Some of the most popular and top-of-the-line browsers include;

How Browsers Work

The main function of every browser is that it brings information resources on the request of users. It allows them to view the information they are after and access the links they want to. Whenever the user enters any URL (Uniform Resource Locator) in the browser, which mostly starts with the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) http, it identifies a resource to be retrieved over the HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol).

Latest browser on internet like those I mentioned above are fully-functional software suites which can display webpages that features HTML, JavaScript, AJAX and other applications on web server. Now browsers contain plugins, from the help of which you can view multimedia content such as sounds and videos. Using these browsers, you can even perform many incredible tasks that were not possible before like video conferencing, design web pages, add anti-phishing and anti-adverts filters.

And most importantly, as time has gone on, now web browsers are also available for mobile devices. There are a number of leading browsers that are also available on different popular platforms in order to access the Web from mobile devices. A browser made for mobile gadgets are also named as micro-browsers. These browsers are solely made for the purpose to display web content on smaller screens efficiently. Another positive point of these micro browsers is that they consume very less operating power and memory capacity as compare to our normal PC’s browsers.
