What is a Browser?
"What is a browser?" was the question Google asked over 50 passersby of different ages and backgrounds in New York.
A browser is an application program that provides a way to look at and interact with all the information on the World Wide Web.
The word "browser" originated prior to the Web as a generic term for user interfaces that let you browse (navigate through and read) text files online.
(Examples: Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera)
A search engine is a web site that collects and organizes content from all over the internet. Those wishing to locate something enter a query about what they'd like to find and the engine provides links to content that matches what they want.
(Examples: Google, Yahoo Search, Bing)
