  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  browser  n.  A  program  specifically  designed  to  help  users  view 
  and  navigate  hypertext,  on-line  documentation,  or  a  database. 
  While  this  general  sense  has  been  present  in  jargon  for  a  long  time, 
  the  proliferation  of  browsers  for  the  World  Wide  Web  after  1992  has  made 
  it  much  more  popular  and  provided  a  central  or  default  techspeak  meaning 
  of  the  word  previously  lacking  in  hacker  usage.  Nowadays,  if  someone 
  mentions  using  a  `browser'  without  qualification,  one  may  assume  it  is 
  a  Web  browser.

  browser 
 
    A  program  which  allows  a  person  to  read 
  {hypertext}.  The  browser  gives  some  means  of  viewing  the 
  contents  of  {nodes}  (or  "pages")  and  of  {navigating}  from  one 
  node  to  another. 
 
  {Netscape  Navigator},  {NCSA}  {Mosaic},  {Lynx},  and  {W3}  are 
  examples  for  browsers  for  the  {World-Wide  Web}.  They  act  as 
  {clients}  to  remote  {web  servers}.
