It is a way for the internet browser to translate the codes that the homepage/information’s is written in – it is a guide for the browser how to navigate on a web page.

In a way one could say that a protocol is guided behavior of the browser. As an example you can imagine you as a guest going to McDonalds – things are done in a certain way, there are a routine you have to follow before you can sit down and eat your food. The guest is the browser and the routines are the protocol.

It is necessary to have a browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, and Firefox) to translate the protocol.
