All Ask Computer and Internet Glossary
A browser is a computer program that runs on your computer that you use to view web pages, and thus "browse". Browser software interprets the markup of files in HTML, formats them into Web pages, and displays them to you on your computer screen. Popular browsers such as Internet Explorer, Opera, Mozilla, Firefox or Safari allow you to visit and navigate websites, thus allowing you to "browse" those websites. Browsing involves looking around the web page and (maybe) clicking on available links to other information. A file browser, is computer software for managing files and related objects on a computer system.
