  • 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, video, and resource in general, 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.
