Web browser

   A client application that lets you look at hypertext documents, follow links to other HTML documents, and download files on the Internet or on a corporate intranet.
   When you find something that interests you as you browse through a hypertext document, you can click on that object, and the system automatically takes care of accessing the Internet host that holds the document you requested; you don't need to know the IP address, the name of the host system, or any other details.
   A Web browser will also display the graphics in a Web page, play audio and video clips, and execute small Java or ActiveX programs called applets, although certain older Web browsers may need helper, or plug-in, applications to perform some of these tasks.
   Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer are examples of popular Web browsers.
