Browsers are a bit of a hot topic at the moment, what with the arrival of
Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox version 2.
A browser is the
program that retrieves web pages from the Internet and displays them on the
screen for you. Your browser in in constant use on your computer. You are
using one right now to view our site, and any other website on the Internet.
There are masses of browsers out there to choose from, but theopenworld.com
wants you to focus in on the world's two most popular browsers:
Firefox 2.0 and
Windows Internet Explorer 7.
Each browser will do just fine for web
surfing and offers all the necessary capabilities. The difference between
them is mainly in the layout of the interface, plug-ins and additional
features. You should try out several for a few weeks and see which one you
like best. Since they are available for free, it won't cost anything but
your time to make that decision.
