Best Browser Software

Browser software allows a user to access and interact with websites (written in HTML, translated into readable content) on the internet. Most browsers support external plugins required to display active content, e.g. in-page video, audio, and Flash content. Browsers are available with different features and are designed to run on different operating systems.

To qualify for inclusion in the Browser category, a product must:

  • Be downloadable
  • Translate HTML into readable content
  • Support external plugins to display active content
