A web browser is a computer program which downloads and displays web pages on the World Wide Web (or a local device). The original internet browser was NCSA Mosaic.[1] Before long, however, Netscape[2] and AOL became most popular, while NCSA Mosaic became obsolete.

There are five major web browsers currently in use; Internet Explorer (replaced by Edge), Firefox, Safari, Opera, and the Chromium-based Google Chrome. Google Chrome currently holds the largest "market share" in desktop browsing.[3]

Other browsers are carving niches such as Dolphin for Android phones, Pale Moon for Atom processors, and Firefox for the privacy-conscious.
