What is Browser  - SSTTEK Academy


A web browser is a software application that allows you to view websites. Through its user interface, it helps you enter website addresses, navigate between pages, and access information on the internet. 

In simple terms, a web browser acts like your librarian on the internet. It allows you to enter website addresses (URLs) to find the information you’re looking for and displays these pages for you. 

The key features of web browsers include: 

  • Address bar: Where you enter website addresses (URLs). 
  • Back and forward buttons: Allow you to navigate between web pages you’ve visited. 
  • Refresh button: Reloads the current web page. 
  • Tabs: Let you open multiple web pages at once and switch between them easily. 
  • Bookmarks: Allow you to save your favorite websites. 
  • Built-in search engine: Enables searching within websites. 
  • Security features: Protect you from malicious software and scams. 

Popular web browsers include: 

  • Google Chrome 
  • Mozilla Firefox 
  • Apple Safari 
  • Microsoft Edge 
  • Opera 

Web browsers are essential tools for internet use, and most operating systems come with a default web browser. However, you can always download and use other web browsers as you wish.
