You are using a browser to read this right now. A web browser, often just called a "browser," is the program people use to access the World Wide Web. It interprets HTML (Hyper-Text Markup Language) code including text, images, hypertext links, etc. After decoding the HTML code, the browser displays a nicely formatted page. When you buy a computer, a browser is usually ready to be used. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is most well-known browser. Other browsers are Apple’s Safari, Mozilla’s Firefox, and Netscape. Some Internet power users prefer Firefox or Opera. I use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer simply because it is usually present and I use several different computers: often other people’s computers. If I had a special need, I would use another or a special use browser.
