A web browser A text editor is simply any application that enables you compose whatever form of text in a document while allowing you save same with whatever name and extension. There are also text editors dedicated to the writing of just HTML documents and yes, there are a lot of text editors out there on various applications' stores both for mobile and desktop devices. A web browser is an application that helps interpret web documents received from a server or computer.

You must also remember that before your HTML document can be recognized and interpreted by browsers, they must be saved with a .html extension. An extension is basically the ending path of a file's name that helps computer devices and even humans to recognize what kind of file it is. For example, when you see a file in a directory named beauty.jpg, you will be able to deduce immediately that it is an image file. So do browsers recognize and interpret files ending with .html as HTML documents.
