DID YOU KNOW?

The first ever web browser was born back in 1990? W3C Director Tim Berners-Lee invented it and called it " WorldWideWeb". It caused too much confusion with the World Wide Web as the time. It was thus renamed to "Nexus" instead. It was not until 5 years later that Microsoft's Internet Explorer. It was the most popular choice during that the time. This was when web browsers were starting to gain mainstream appeal and recognition. Apple released their own web browser made for their Mac computers called Safari in 2003. Mozilla Firefox released a year later, replacing the outgoing Netscape Navigator. 2008 marked a great milestone for web browsers with the release of Google's Chrome. It went on to become one of the best lightweight browsers in the market for its speed and clean UI. The coming years saw the development of web browsers for different needs. There were lightweight browsers for the fastest experience possible. There were feature-rich ones for the best customization options.

This was the time when smart mobile devices market was growing. Smartphones and tablets became popular with spec improvement year by year. It soon replaced PC and laptops for simple web browsing needs due to the portability factor. It was not long after that mobile web browsers were being developed to meet this new need. Plenty of options came out for Android devices as well as iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.
