Do You Know What a Browser Is?

19 June 2009

Welcome to the archive

This post is old… It's probably been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the year. That probably means that there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any adivce is out of date and irrelevant. Or more likely, it was the wafflings of bored-past me with too much time on his hands. If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

It is a fairly harmless question... do you know what a browser is? Google put this question to 50 people in Times Square, New York, and I'll be honest I was surprised at the answers that were given.

Ok, so perhaps the research was a little off because the guy was from Google, however the results are still fairly shocking so I thought I would use a nice little video that I found to advertise Google Chrome that nicely explains what a browser is:

All sorted? Good! Yes, your browser is a cat, that fetches the little bird that are web pages.
