Jermaine Reaves Browsers 2013 by Mind Map: Jermaine Reaves Browsers 2013

1. Define:

1.1. Browser - A Web browser is a software program that interprets the coding language of the World Wide Web in graphic form, displaying the translation rather than the coding. This allows anyone to “browse the Web” by simple point and click navigation, bypassing the need to know commands used in software languages.

1.2. Browser Plugins (extension) - A browser extension is a computer program that extends the functionality of a web browser in some way. Depending on the browser and the version, the term may be distinct from similar terms such as plug-in or add-on.

1.3. HTML5 - HTML5 is a markup language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web and a core technology of the Internet. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard.

3.2. Cons
