What is a web browser?

A browser (or a web browser) is what you are using to view this definition! The most common browsers to access the internet are Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Every browser is different in the way it renders and displays content. Only some support certain fonts or latest techniques. Keep your browser updated to avoid wonky-loading webpages.

What about Internet Explorer?

I recommend you join the rest of us who have jumped that ship. I do not test or work with old or abandoned browsers, for example Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or 5.5 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Opera unless otherwise specified.
