So what exactly is a browser?

It is a software application that allows you to look at (or browse) the World Wide Web. Just like Word Perfect, Word, and Macwrite are all word processing applications, Netscape, Mosaic and Lynx are all WWW browsing applications. Hence they are known as browsers. So when you read, "Use your browser's Back button", it mean use the "Back" button that comes with your software application (aka browser) that you use to look at the Web.

In Netscape:

In Mosaic: Please Note: If your browser is neither Netscape nor Mosaic, there is information available on how to download the newest version of Netscape.
