What is a browser?

I just remembered this video today. It’s a great look at what people think a browser is. It’s incredible how many people confuse a browser with a search engine.

Now that the browser ballot has come into effect in the EU, will this lead people to be more educated about what a browser is? The browser ballot page has no information as to what a browser is and what it is for. As the video shows, many people are ignorant on the subject. Choosing a good browser is not something easy for those that have no idea what this is.

What would you do to increase awareness on web browsers and other important Internet technologies most users ignore?
