Actually, a web browser isn't about Internet anymore. A lot of coporate
aplications have a web interface, allowing any client with a browser to
use them, regardless of the client platform. That's one of the features
allowing Linux workstations into the workspace.
At my office, the secretaries get all the cool stuff!
