    Browser is the application you use to search while default search engine is the search engine that is used by the browser to search when you search at the browser's search bar. Example of browsers are firefox , chrome, and internet explorer. You can set the default search engine in your browser's options. Examples of search engines that you can set as default is google, yahoo, and bing.

    A browser is a piece of software that runs on your PC. Examples are Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera and Firefox. The browser allows you, via a connection to the internet via your Internet service provider, to access web pages stored on computers (servers) that are connected to the internet.

    A search engine is a piece of application software that sits on a powerful computer (a server) on the Internet. This computer stores information about where web pages are stored on the internet.

    If you can set a default engine then you can also set a default browser? Right? Like with my computer, I have three browsers, firefox, explorer and chrome but my default browser is chrome.

    Thats true friends.
    You all have differentiate very well and perfect by giving proper example of it like Mozilla is a browser and Google is a search engine.

    Thank for sharing this information coz many folks considere Mozilla and Google same i.e. Search Engine.
