    Hello Jeevan Kumar

    I think, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome both are the most preferred Internet browsers in the world. Internet Explorer can be considered as most preferred as it is recommended by Microsoft.

    Hai ZINI and Dinesh sir,

    Thank you very much for your opinion but let me clear it was not IE and not Chrome as my question is, Which was the first browser ever used? And Chrome is very new same way IE came after Netscape and thus there was the first browser something else? That is my question "What was the world's first widely used Internet browser?"

    HI Jeevan,

    The first widely used web browser was NCSA Mosaic. The Mosaic programming team then created the first commercial web browser called Netscape Navigator, later renamed Communicator, then renamed back to just Netscape. The Netscape browser led in user share until Microsoft Internet Explorer took the lead in 1999 due to its distribution advantage. A free open source software version of Netscape was then developed called Mozilla, which was the internal name for the old Netscape browser, and released in 2002. Mozilla has since gained in market share, particularly on non-Windows platforms, largely due to its open source foundation, and in 2004 was released in the quickly popular FireFox version.

    Hello Jeevan Kumar

    Internet Explorer 8.0 is the widely used Internet browser at present. Google chrome also good and we can say Google Chrome is second one.
