Web browsers are HTTP protocol clients which render documents on the World Wide Web, which are called Web pages. The most commonly used ones are graphical browsers, which can display graphics as well as text. In addition, most can also play multimedia like sounds and video, though they usually require plug-ins (add-on modules) for some formats. Web browsers often support additional protocols such as Gopher and FTP.
