Web browser
A web browser (commonly referred to as a browser) is a software application for retrieving, presenting and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web. An information resource is identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI/URL) and may be a web page, image, video or other piece of content.[1] Hyperlinks present in resources enable users easily to navigate their browsers to related resources. Although browsers are primarily intended to use the World Wide Web, they can also be used to access information provided by web servers in private networks or files in file systems. History The first web browser was invented in 1990 by Sir Tim Berners-Lee. It was called WorldWideWeb and was later renamed Nexus.[3] The first commonly available web browser with a graphical user interface was Erwise. Microsoft responded with its Internet Explorer in 1995, also heavily influenced by Mosaic, initiating the industry's first browser war. Business models Function Features User interface Components

Web application A web application or web app is any software that runs in a web browser. It is created in a browser-supported programming language (such as the combination of JavaScript, HTML and CSS) and relies on a web browser to render the application.[1][2][3] History[edit] In earlier computing models, e.g. in client-server, the load for the application was shared between code on the server and code installed on each client locally. In other words, an application had its own client program which served as its user interface and had to be separately installed on each user's personal computer.

Comparison of web browsers The following tables compare general and technical information for a number of web browsers. Please see the individual products' articles for further information. General information[edit] Basic general information about the browsers: creator, company, license, price, etc. Operating system support[edit] Browsers are compiled to run on certain operating systems, without emulation.

Comparison of layout engines (Scalable Vector Graphics) The following tables compare SVG compatibility and support for a number of layout engines. Please see the individual products' articles for further information. Unless otherwise specified in footnotes, comparisons are based on the stable versions without any add-ons, extensions or external programs. Explanation of the tables[edit] Chapter 1. Tutorial Intended for new users, this chapter provides an step-by-step introduction to Hibernate, starting with a simple application using an in-memory database. The tutorial is based on an earlier tutorial developed by Michael Gloegl. All code is contained in the tutorials/web directory of the project source. For this example, we will set up a small database application that can store events we want to attend and information about the host(s) of these events. The first thing we need to do is to set up the development environment. We will be using the "standard layout" advocated by alot of build tools such as Maven.

Usage share of web browsers Most used web browser by country as of February 2014 according to StatCounter. The usage share of web browsers is the proportion, often expressed as a percentage, of visitors to a group of websites that use a particular web browser. Web browser usage share varies from region to region as well as through time. Accuracy[edit] Best Free Browser Protection Utility. My first recommendation for safe browsing is a free program called Sandboxie, for Windows 2000 and later. It creates a special contained "sandbox" environment on your PC, as this animation shows. While browsing within the virtual sandbox provided by Sandboxie, you are totally isolated from the vital portions of your PC, namely your operating system environment on your hard drive and memory locations for your current OS session. So any files you download are isolated to the sandbox. Similarly, any programs that are executed only do so within the sandbox, and have no access to your normal files, the Windows operating system or any other part of your PC. Usage is remarkably simple.

Scalable Vector Graphics Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviors are defined in XML text files.

Tor on Android Tor on Android Tor is available for Android by installing our package named Orbot. Orbot is an application that allows mobile phone users to access the web, instant messaging and email without being monitored or blocked by their mobile internet service provider. Orbot brings the features and functionality of Tor to the Android mobile operating system. Orbot contains Tor and libevent. WebKit WebKit is available under a BSD-form license [10] with the exception of the WebCore and JavaScriptCore components, which are available under the GNU Lesser General Public License.

Database Java DB Java DB is Oracle's supported distribution of the open source Apache Derby database. Its ease of use, standards compliance, full feature set, and small footprint make it the ideal database for Java developers. Java DB is written in the Java programming language, providing "write once, run anywhere" portability. It can be embedded in Java applications, requiring zero administration by the developer or user. Timeline of web browsers This is a timeline of web browsers from the early 1990s to the present. Prior to browsers, many technologies and systems existed for information viewing and transmission. For an in depth history of earlier web browsers see the web browser article.

Gecko (layout engine) Gecko is a web browser engine used in many applications developed by Mozilla Foundation and the Mozilla Corporation (notably the Firefox web browser including its mobile version and their e-mail client Thunderbird), as well as in many other open source software projects. Gecko is free and open-source software subject to the terms of the Mozilla Public License version 2. It is designed to support open Internet standards, and is used by different applications to display web pages and, in some cases, an application's user interface itself (by rendering XUL). Gecko offers a rich programming API that makes it suitable for a wide variety of roles in Internet-enabled applications, such as web browsers, content presentation, and client/server.[6] Development of the layout engine now known as Gecko began at Netscape in 1997, following the company's purchase of DigitalStyle. As Gecko development continued, other applications and embedders began to make use of it.
