What is the difference between a server and a browser?
I admit to being confused between these two terms.
Browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web while server is a program on a server computer, somewhere out on the internet, that delivers web pages to web browser.
Browser is the software to take the web for you (ex : IE, firefox)
Server is a computer or device that manage the resource of the network.
file server : where many people can share (store/read) the date on it
Print server : manage network of more than 1 printer
Database server : where people store the data and it proceed queries when having accessing
Network server : the computer manage many other computer on that network
A web browser is what you're probably looking at right now: a program on your computer that shows you stuff that's on the web. A web server is a program on a server computer, somewhere out on the Internet, that delivers web pages to web browsers
A web browser is software that enables you to communicate with the Internet. Examples are Internet Explorer, Firefox while the web server is a computer that is used for networking. Some uses of these are file sharing, printer sharing, creating a domain, and internet restrictions.
