Does Web-based mail allow me to use a server or browser as e-mail client software?

This is confusing since I might use Google to browse for my email and it might also serve as my email provider through my Gmail account. In either case, I hadn't considered either a browser or server to be software. I would appreciate any help to understand this concept. :-) (Please, do not answer with a website to visit.)

    This is the way i see it. You must use a browser in order to access Web-based mail. The mailbox that you access is on a server. For instance, if you use Gmail, Google must host the email accounts on their servers in order for you to access and store the files. In order to get to the Web-based email, you must use a browser.
