You may be thinking, my browser is just a simple web program I use to get online and look at cat pictures. But it's also so much more than that! Your browser is an essential part of the way you and your computer understand each other. In this article, we'll take a look at how browsers talk to computers, why some are better than others, and even go into some deep internet history.
We look at the different browsers out there and how they stack up against each other in terms of functionality and features. Today almost all the applications that you use on a regular basis are web-based. This means that we use browsers to access them. In the olden days, when there were no browsers, people had to be content with accessing websites through text-based interfaces and then viewing it on their computer screens. The history of browsers is filled with innovations that have changed the way we use the internet. The first-ever browser was called WorldWideWeb and was built in 1990 by Tim Berners Lee.
The What is my Browser is a free science-fiction short story by American writer and editor Isaac Asimov. It was written in response to a writing assignment for the magazine Astounding Science Fiction, but it was rejected. The story remained unpublished until 1988 when it appeared in Asimov's collection of short stories The Alternate Asimovs.
