A web browser does much more than just browse. It presents and manages information in many different ways providing a conduit and console with which you can manage your computer and its relationship to the web. For our purposes we might want to think of it as a television, radio, newspaper, magazine, filing-cabinet, transportation device, mailbox, and telephone all rolled up into one.
TBL envisions a larger editing role for the 'browser'. Expect to see more web-based collaboration techniques built into tools like office productivity suites, digital editing software, web browsers and so on.

I think the two most popular web browers are internet explorer and Mozilla Firefox. I personally use Firefox. I took an Information Technology course last semester and our prof recommended that we use Firefox. Apparently it is supposed to be a better web browser and as less viruses involved with it. He said that most of the viruses that are made are made for Internet Explorer and by using Firefox we would be able to avoid most of them. Whether this is true or not is yet to be seen. But I can personally say, that before I used Firefox I used to get viruses all of the time and I have been using Firefox since september and have not had one!

To reply to Jen's comment, I also use Mozilla Firefox for the reason of having less viruses associated with it than IE and Nescape. I was wondering if the same amount of viruses are associated with each operating system? For example to compare MAC OS10 and a Windows based system. I am guessing there would be less viruses associated with Mac's than anything else due to a virus wanting to spread as fast as possible through as many computers as possible. Since most people have Windows based systems, perhaps that is why more viruses are made? Any thoughts...
