Clients, Servers, and Browsers The Internet connects two kinds of computers: servers, which serve up documents, and clients, which retrieve and display documents for us humans. Things that happen on the server machine are said to be on the server side, and activities on the client machine occur on the client side.

These browser clients talk to special web servers over the Internet to access, retrieve, and display electronic documents.
