Best web browsers | Top Ten Reviews

The best internet browser isn’t necessarily the default one that comes with your device. Whether you’re looking for faster web browsing or more security while you’re online, we’ll help you choose the right internet browser in this guide. 

After more than 80 hours of research and testing, we came to the conclusion that Mozilla Firefox is the best internet browser for most people. It boasts fast page loads, quick navigation and, most importantly, secure browsing. We tested each web browser’s default security settings using live malware, and Firefox correctly stopped more malicious downloads – and warned of more dangerous websites – than any other popular web browser. 

However, there are a number of very good browsers to choose between, and the right one for you will depend on your requirements. You’ll find our pick of the best internet browsers below.

web development – What are the differences between server-side and client-side programming?

Other answers have focused on what is client-side and server-side programming: what languages are mostly used, what tasks have to be accomplished, etc.

This is absolutely right, but I miss a bit of focus on what are the differences between both types of programming, in the context of web programming. Let me try to address that.

Security and permissions

In client-side programming, you do not have access to the full system, because of security concerns. The user does not necessarily trust each and every piece of code that is downloaded from the web and executed on his machine, and this is the main design goal of the client-side environment (the browser and JavaScript engine): to provide an isolated environment where client code can execute but cannot access anything outside the allowed scope.

In server-side programming, it is good practice to also limit the access of each application to the underlying

    Internet History Timeline: ARPANET to the World Wide Web

    Credit for the initial concept that developed into the World Wide Web is typically given to Leonard Kleinrock. In 1961, he wrote about ARPANET, the predecessor of the Internet, in a paper entitled “Information Flow in Large Communication Nets.” Kleinrock, along with other innnovators such as J.C.R. Licklider, the first director of the Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO), provided the backbone for the ubiquitous stream of emails, media, Facebook postings and tweets that are now shared online every day. Here, then, is a brief history of the Internet:

    The precursor to the Internet was jumpstarted in the early days of computing history, in 1969 with the U.S. Defense Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET). ARPA-funded researchers developed many of the protocols used for Internet communication today. This timeline offers a brief history of the Internet’s evolution:

    The Differences Between the Internet and the Web

    Main » Did You Know » Internet »

    By Vangie Beal

    Many people use the terms Internet and World Wide Web (aka. the Web) interchangeably, but in fact the two terms are not synonymous. The Internet and the Web are two separate but related things.

    What is The Internet?

    The internet is a massive network of networks, a networking infrastructure. It connects millions of computers together globally, forming a network in which any computer can communicate with any other computer as long as they are both connected to the internet. Information that travels over the internet does so via a variety of languages known as protocols.

    Quick Points about The Internet:

    • It is a global network connecting millions of computers.
    • The internet is decentralized.
    • Each internet computer is independent.
    • There are a variety of ways to access the internet.
    • There are more than 3.5 billion internet users in the world.
