What Is a Browser?

Yesterday, teddy posted a twit on what is a browser?


I followed the link and leads me to Youtube. I can’t hold to my belly any longer. I laughed so loud, tears filled my eyes. I was rather confused, should I feel bad or sorry for them?

For something you use almost daily (modern slaves), it’s hard to think people mistook it for a search engine!

So what is a browser? Answer: A software to browse the Internet.

I can’t believe I’m still laughing while I’m writing this. I know, I’m a jerk. Oh well, nobody’s complaining. So what the hell 😛

ps: Maybe I should ask random people on the streets too.

pss: I know it’s bad to laugh at people. But I still can’t help it!

  1. well…i don’t say they’re stupid, they’re just ignorant…i don’t really blame them if they don’t know what a browser or term browser as a search engine because the start page is 98% a search engine and you have a quick search function at the top right of browsers…

    but yeah..still..browser is not definitely a search engine…or at least it’s wrong in the definition.

    ask people of malaysia if they knew the first PM, sing negaraku, rukun negara…i bet some of them forgot about it. 😀

    if you really want to go on the streets bro, let me know. want to tag along and laugh my lungs out 😛 😛

  2. 😀 miahaha kekadang soalan tu budak2 boleh jawap, yelah tak semua orang tau semua benda dan diorang tak peduli pun 😎

  3. same here..some question i dont even understand..huhu~ but certainly when they want to pin the country that they want to invade is really funny.

  4. yeah. ignorant. my mistake.

    I guess the responsible media in the video above had done a good job to let the world knows what happened to people nowadays.

  5. I always find it amusing when there are people who asks what a browser is on answer sites like Yahoo Answers.
    I can’t blame them though, because I think I wasn’t able to answer the question when I was studying HTML back in high school. 😀
