Funny: What Is A Browser?

Buzz this

Before you snort at this question, think about the countless number of people who are strangers to this term.

Most of us won’t be able to survive without it, but that does not mean we know what it is.

For most people, the first thing they see when they open up their browser is their search homepage. Who can blame them for mistaking Search Engines as Browsers?

What Google did some time ago was to ask over 50 passersby; randomly picked out from Times Square, New York a seemingly simple question,

“What is a Browser?”

Enjoy the results below and for the record, a browser is NOT a Search Engine.

To help people who are still wondering what a browser is, Google has just created a video that would hopefully clear some clouds.

There’s also a website to tell you which browser you are using and why it matters.
