web client

A Web client represents the user side of the Web; the provider side is the Web server that the Web client can access. A web client, which forms the web browser, and web server communicate with each other using the service primitives defined by the Open Systems Interconnection

(OSI). The communication between the web client and web server is done using the request-response method. In this method, the Web browser makes an HTTPrequest to the Web server, for example, for Web page content. The web server responds to the HTTP request with an HTTPresponse and sends the requested document

tothe web client.

Web clients are formed by the user-facing components - which can be desktops, smartphones, tablets, or notebooks - on which the user 's computer applications run. Operations and requests to the server-side components are developed and executed on these devices.
