However, there are literally dozens of browsers that have existed since the “birth” of the internet. Not including mobile browsers (such as browsers found on some of the earlier cell phones), the list of major browsers that have existed are as follows:
These are in roughly chronological order, as presented by Wikipedia Other browsers have existed, but due to their low popularity were not included on this list. Low popularity, of course, is relative to the time era; WorldWideWeb never had as many users as Chrome does today, but was used by the majority of the Internet users in the world at the time it came out (as it was the first real web browser). In the real world, only a few browsers are considered serious contenders of the “market”, as the rest are either obsolete, only fill a niche market, or have not yet gained popularity; the latter usually comes about because people are hesitant to “try” a new browser since their current browser has served their purpose for a significant length of time
some examples of web browsers are chrome, firefox, sparkbrowser, netscape, and internet explorer.
There are three major browsers in the PC world. The most famous is Internet Explorer (IE) which is a Microsoft creation, and is bundled with the Windows operating system. Internet explorer has been prone to numerous security bugs and is considered the least secure out of all three major browsers. The second major browser is Firefox, which is amongst the most secure, and is the most easiest to use in my opinion. The third is Chrome which is a recent browser Google has released. It to is easy to use and secure for the most part.
In terms of the MAc platform the only major broswer is Safari, which is a Apple creation, and is bundled with the OS platform.
