Class 4.03: Web Browsers

A Web Browser is software used to access and navigate the Internet. It’s the vehicle that allows you to go where you want to go on the Internet.

Windows computers come with the Edge browser installed and Apple Computers come with the Safari browser installed.

Different types of browsers, such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari and Opera, are brands just as Chevy and Ford are brands of cars. Browsers, like cars, all offer similar basic features and operate in similar ways. Once you know how to use one browser, it is easy to learn to use others.

If you’d prefer to use a different browser, you can download Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Opera freely and safely from the Internet.
