Even if you probably already know this it's worth mentioning that browsers are applications used to connect to the Internet and display web pages by interpreting the HTML tags in the source code and displaying human readable content. Of course, browsers do a lot more than that but for now that's all you need to know.
Another tool that you need is a plain text editor. There are many choices out there and some are really complex. However, for the purpose of this tutorial, all you need is Notepad in Windows or an equivalent for Mac.Read Full Article...
