Browsers are software that provide a graphical interface to information on the Web and facilitate web navigation with address bars, bookmarks, backward and forward buttons, and other tools.

Internet Explorer and Firefox are popular browers, and there are a variety of others. Choosing a browser is often a matter of personal preference combined with what type of computer and operating system you have. Regardless of your browser choice, it is always a good idea to have an up to date version.
