A web browser (commonly referred to as a browser) is a software application for accessing information on the World Wide Web. Each individual web page, image, and video is identified by a distinct Uniform Resource Locator (URL), enabling browsers to retrieve these resources from a web server and display them on a user's device.
There are several web browsers available in Debian, including:
Firefox - open-source web browser developed by the Mozilla Foundation
Chromium - open source web browser used as a base Google Chrome
GNOME Web - (epiphany-browser package) simple yet powerful GNOME web browser targeted at non-technical users
TorBrowser - Firefox-based Web browser aimed at defending against tracking, surveillance, and censorship.
midori - fast, lightweight graphical web browser
Text editors that can be used in a terminal emulator environment.
elinks - advanced text-mode WWW browser
links - Web browser running in text mode
links2 - Web browser running in both graphics and text mode
lynx - classic text-mode web browser with support for Gopher, HTTP, FTP, WAIS, and NNTP protocols
w3m - WWW browsable pager with excellent tables/frames support
