Computer owners also have the option of installing other web browsers onto their computer. Other popular web browsers include Google Chrome and Firefox. These browsers allow users to add extensions to make a browser more effective. If a user has doubts about which browser they are using, they can go to the Help portion of the browser, usually located in the toolbar at the top of the browser. This will supply information on what browser is being used as well as the version.
