The browser war between Google, Mozilla and Microsoft rages on, but if you’re confused by all this talk of rendering and javascript, help is at hand. Google’s taken the time to go back to basics and explain just exactly what a browser is with a new site and video.

If you think Chrome is just for cars, and Firefox is something you might find defecating in the garden, you’d do well to check out Google’s new site, whatbrowser.org. It’s a clean, easy to use site that explains the basics of web browsing for those not in the know. It covers the Jack and Jill stuff, such as how a browser differs from an OS and other software, and even tells you what one you’re running.

You can take a look at Google’s video here, and heading over to the site itself will let you see what your other browser options are: it auto-detects if you’re on Mac or PC, and will tailor your options accordingly.
