What is your browser?

I use two web browsers: Mozilla Firefox & Google Chrome. I usually use google chrome, as it is much faster to start up and when browsing is much more responsive. I prefer Google chrome for its speed, but still use Mozilla Firefox for its customizability and better ad-blocking when using Adblock Plus add-on. (Google Chrome has an Adblock Plus extension also, but it is still in Beta stage of development and sometimes misses a few ads.) I would recommend both browsers.

Mosaic is the web browser credited with popularizing the World Wide Web. It was also a client for earlier protocols such as FTP, NNTP, and gopher. Its clean, easily understood user interface, reliability, Windows port and simple installation all contributed to making it the application that opened up the Web to the general public. Mosaic was also the first browser to display images inline with text instead of displaying images in a separate window. While often described as the first graphical web browser, Mosaic was preceded by the lesser-known Erwise and ViolaWWW. Mosaic was developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign beginning in late 1992. NCSA released the browser in 1993, and officially discontinued development and support on January 7, 1997. However, it can still be downloaded from NCSA. Fifteen years after Mosaic's introduction, the most popular contemporary browsers, Internet Explorer , Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome retain many of the characteristics of the original Mosaic graphical user interface (GUI) and interactive experience.

Why does a web browser uses interpreter instead of compiler to execute programs?

Because code to be executed in the web browser has to be able torun on any system (independent of the Operating System, CPU, orbrowser is being used), it needs to be transmitted in source codeform rather than in a compiled object or executable form, because code is compiled for a specific"architecture" (a combination of OS, CPU, and other parameters).This means that compiled code is no longer universal. As a result,software for the web is typically written in so-called"interpreted" languages, which are executed directly from theprogram source. . Some JavaScript and other interpreters actually do perform anoptimization known as precompilation , where the code isfirst compiled internally for faster execution. This is also knownas Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation. However, the compiled form ofthe code is discarded after use, rather than being permanentlystored or transmitted over the network. Therefore, thoseprogramming languages are still considered interpreted. . Notable exceptions to this are Java, which uses a compiledformat (because compiled Java programs are universal; theyrun on an architecture-independent "Java Virtual Machine"), andsome other plugin-based binary objects such as Flash.

Why are web browser programs computer based software and not Internet based?

The idea of having a Web browser hostedsomewhere would make the purpose redundant (as in defeating thepurpose since you'd have to get on the Internet to browse theInternet).
