- [Voiceover] When browsing the internet…on a Windows PC, you'll use one of many browsers…that can be used on a Windows computer.…And if you're using older versions of Windows,…you might be accustomed to using Internet Explorer.…Not everybody likes it, so you may have downloaded…one of your own, like Google Chrome or FireFox.…In Windows 10 it's the Edge browser that's used by default.…Well, here on a Mac we can use…multiple different browsers as well.…The default though that most people use on a Mac is Safari,…which by the way can also be used on a Windows computer.…
