A www client is called as Browser and a www server is called as web server.
They are complimentary and not supplementary of the web system.
Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are the most popular web browsers.
A browser is a software that navigates through the world wide web and displays the pages of the website.
A server is the software that responds to the request made by the browser to display the web pages.
Web address is the location of a website server. Each website has a unique address called as Uniform Resource Locator(URL). For example, Blogger website address is given as "http://www.blogger.com".
The Internet structure of www is built on a set of rules framed to have uniform standard for all the web servers. These rules are termed as Hyper Text Transfer Protocol(HTTP) and a page description language called Hyper Text Markup Language(HTML).
Elements of URL

- Type of server or protocol
- Name,address of the server
- Location of the file ( otherwise known as "path" the file hierarchy.
In any typical URL like http://www.blogger.com", the "http" identifies both the protocol and server. As per set standards, a colon(:) and two forward slashes(//) follow the protocol/server.
The next element is the name of the server , in this case "Blogger.com"
