    To me, browsing is more surfacy. That means it is just going here and there without a target following wherever the internet stream takes you. Searching means you are looking for something specific and won't get waylaid on the way.

    Browse means to view data, browsing means viewing/retrieving of data or information.
    Searching means finding anything.

    You can't do searching without browsing. But you can do browsing without searching.

    Browsing is looking around for ... searching is looking for something in particular.

    i think the main difference of browsing and searching is browsing means to go any kind of website by giving the location in adressber and searching means to find any particular things/documents in any kind of seo sites.

    Browsing is just visiting any website or the web for information, while searching means using any specific search engine for digging out the information you are in search off.

    Browsing is done in Browser's firefox, Chrome, IE or any else, where you enter the address of website directly in the address bar to open it and Search is simply you open any search engine and type keyword for searching.

    i think the basic difference between the browsing and searching are browsing scan a worldwide web through a certain link from one page to another page or one site to another site,on the other hand searching refers to looking for specific pieces of information using search engines.

    Browsing is searching for a web page or site. Searching means to find any particular topic. While browsing you will have to enter a web address in the address bar. To search anything you will have to enter the keywords.

    Browsing involves exploring the shared directory structures of your contacts and Searching describes looking for something specific, and generally by entering search terms at a search engine to find information you want.
