Among them, there are many sub-categories such as web browsers and browser add-ons, newsgroup programs, RSS readers, P2P programs, network monitoring applications and many more. Below we present selected subcategories along with the most interesting representatives.

Internet Browsers

Web browsers are applications that help us to download and display the content of websites provided by web servers, along with the multimedia files contained therein. Here are examples:

Opera – also available for free download, a very popular web browser. You can install it on all current system platforms Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux.

It is also worth mentioning other similar programs, such as Mozilla Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari or Maxthon.

Browser Add-ons

The Internet browsers themselves are functional and useful for performing many tasks, but thanks to the right extensions, they can do more. Here are examples of known add-ons:

Adobe Flash Player – an essential extension for playing movies, animations, running web applications and games directly in a web browser.

The flagship program of this type is TeamViewer, which allows you to establish an internet connection with another computer or server. It is available for many operating systems, including mobile ones.
