The Browser – the Internet program without which we would all be lost

When I was school age, the story went around campus of the girl who failed her driver’s license test. 

It seems the testing officer told her she failed to set the parking brake, to which she responded “What’s that?”  Sometimes I will ask someone to open their browser and they answer, “What’s that?”  Far from being frustrated I remind myself what a truly wonderful thing it is for completely non-technical people to be able to use the vast resources of the internet.

What is an Internet Browser?  The best definition I can offer is that a browser, also known as a web browser or internet browser, is a software program installed on your computer/tablet/phone that you use to access the internet and view web pages.  Your browser is your window to the internet and without it you would be utterly lost.
