Example text

You display a web page on the screen of a computer, tablet, or phone by using a program called a web browser. A person can retrieve and open a web page in a web browser either by entering a URL in the web browser’s Address box or by clicking a link. No matter which method is used, the user’s web browser asks a web server for the web page in what is referred to as a request. A web server is a computer that delivers web pages. What the web server returns to the user is called the response. Many apps installed on smartphones and tablets are technically web docu- Note ments that access web servers.

To respond to the demand for greater interactivity in web pages, an entirely new web programming language was needed. Netscape filled this need by developing JavaScript. JavaScript is a client-side scripting language that allows web page authors to develop interactive web pages and sites. Client-side scripting refers to programming with a scripting language that runs on a local browser (on the client tier) instead of on a web server (on the processing tier). Originally designed for use in Navigator web browsers, JavaScript is now also used in all major web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

One benefit of the browser wars was that they forced the web industry to rapidly develop and adopt advanced web page standards (including JavaScript, CSS, and DHTML) that are consistent across browsers. In , Internet Explorer appeared to have essentially won the browser wars, as it controlled percent of the browser market. However, Microsoft did not fully support web standards in subsequent versions of Internet Explorer, creating an opening for browsers that were more fully compliant with current standards.
