What is difference between Browsing and Searching?

    Here's a real life example: When I'm on eBay, I either browse or search. When I have a specific item in mind, I search for it. When I'm just bored and looking around to see what's out there, I browse.

    To look for information on the Internet is called browsing.
    The activity of casually looking at something that offers numerous options is called surfing.

    You can check and read any website on your browser. It's called a browsing and when you search or find any website with keyword help. It's called searching ... Like you are searching on google.com that is searching ...

    You are browsing when you are searching.
    You may not be searching when you are browsing.

    The hell w/ this topic but anyways, Browsing is scanning pages w/out anything specific to find while Searching is you are fully aware of what you need to find.

    Browsing is just rendering through the web pages and searching about seeking for a particular piece of information.

    Browsing is random reading casually while searching is going deep through things that you wanted to know.

    IMO, browsing means that you are just surfing around and looking for something interesting which you may stumble to find while searching is that looking for a particular event, search, topic, etc. with your own interest.

    Juliapattrick has the right answer for you. You actually need a website address for you to be able to browse. But with searching you only need the keyword which you hence google - the work of SEO.

    Browsing - looking for something interesting
    Searching - searching is just trying to find the information you need.

    juliapattrick Thank You for providing really unique difference.
    Browsing means looking for the website or web pages.and searching means finding any particular thing.In browsing you enter the address of particular website or web page in the address bar but in searching you enter the keyword in the google search window.
