Browser

A browser (or internet browser) is a type of software that accesses the World Wide Web. It displays information from web pages on a computer or mobile device. Most browsers display text, images and graphics from the internet. However, some browsers might require additional "plug-ins" to process multimedia such as audio and video. Browsers connect webpages via hyperlinks classified with uniform resource identifiers (URIs).

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Browser

SMBs use browsers to access information, send emails, watch videos, update social media profiles and execute day-to-day business operations. Business teams might prefer a specific browser over another (Google, Firefox, Safari) because it loads pages or renders information faster.
