The Advent of Modern Web Browsers

 

Web Browsing might not be possible if we don't have a Browser

I can tell u that Browsers are designed with rules on

HTTP-“Hyper Text Transfer Protocol”

When we enter a

URL-Universal Resource Locator

Browser locates the address and shows us the Information at that “Url”.

Browsers had undergone lot of evolution,In 1990’s     when Tim Berners lee first browsers came in to existence, There was no Graphical interface at that time,The innovation of Browser led to more better Hardware and Software’s,Before there used to be browsers which are very slow and just used to display in the format of Dos Programs
