What do you understand by the term Web Browser? Mention some popular web browsers.

Web browser is a software that is used to view websites. It is an interface between a user and the World Wide Web.

A web browser can have a graphical user interface, e.g., Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, or can be text-based, e.g., Lynx.

The user can navigate files, folders and websites using hyperlinks. Multiple tabs and windows of the same browser can be opened.

The features and facilities offered by a web browser include downloads, bookmarks, and password management.

It also offers functions, like spell checking, search engine tool bars, tabbed browsing, advertisement filtering, HTML access keys, and pop-up blocking.

Some most popular web browsers are Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE), OPERA, and Microsoft Edge.

What is the difference between a Website and Web page?

A website is a collection of related web pages containing images, videos, or other digital media set under the same domain name. These pages are written in Hyper Text Mark-up Language (HTML) and can be accessed via internet. A website is hosted on a web server on the World Wide Web. Each site is owned and managed by an individual, a company, or an organization.

Web page is a digital page which may contain text, hyperlink, videos, audios, images, tables, etc. It is commonly written by using HTML (Hypertext markup language) and is stored on a web server. Each webpage is identified by a unique web address called Uniform Resource Locator (URL).

Define URL. Explain its parts with the help of an example.

The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) denotes the global address of the web documents and the web resource. Internet communication is the main reason for identifying a resource on the web. The URL has two parts:

1. Protocol Identifier: It tells the internet browser what protocol needs to be followed to access the address.
2. Resource Name: It specifies the complete address of the resource on the Internet.

Example – where https is Protocol and is Resource Name.
