Internet Browsers Support
An internet browser support, also known as a web browser or simply a browser, is a software program that you use to access the internet and view web pages on your computer. You can think of your browser as your gateway to the internet. If you want to enter online sweepstakes, for example, you must first open the giveaways’ websites in your internet browser.
The main purpose of an internet browser support is to translate, or render, the code that websites are designed in into the text, graphics, and other features of the web pages that we are all used to seeing today.
The First Web Browser:
The first web browser was called WorldWideWeb, and later changed its name to Nexus. Created by Sir Tim Berbers-Lee, it was released in 1990, and at least gave people a basic way to view web pages. But it was a long way from the immersive online experience we have today.
Without browsers, the internet as we know it today would be impossible. Before the first popular graphical browser, Mosaic, was released in 1992, the internet was text-based, bland, and required technical knowledge to use. Because of this, the number of people who had the ability and the interest to use the internet was limited.
Mosaic helped make the internet ubiquitous. The graphical interface made navigating the web easy to understand and the ability to display graphics next to the text on websites made web pages more interesting to browse.
And people no longer needed to have deep technical knowledge to be able to go online.
With more people online, companies were quick to follow. E-commerce, online sweepstakes, social media, and many other things we take for granted today would be impossible without internet browsers support.
