I encourage asking when you have a question. That's a good way to get help. But just like with programming questions, I'd like to know some background. When it comes to programming questions, I'd like to know something about the problem at hand and what the person asking the question has tried so far, and with which results. In this case, there's perhaps not too much to say about the background (except maybe WHY you want to know, like Kev points out). But what are your ideas about what it is? Where have you looked for information? A few years ago, I always started looking in Books Online when I got stuck on something SQL Server related. Nowadays, most people don't have Books Online installed locally. I personally tend to start googling for some keywords to my issues and usually I end up in the online version of Books Online (yes, I know Books Online installed locally is somewhat a contradiction). Googling "Sql Server Browser" gives lots of results. The first result takes me to the documentation of Sql Server Browser in SQL Server 2005. The second hit takes me to the Books Online documentation of Sql Server Browser for versions 2008 to 2016. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms181087(v=sql.105).aspx I guess you already took that small step to Learning about the Sql Server Browser. So more specifically, what about SQL Server Browser is it that you want to know more about?
