We're a bunch of five brothers (though others exist),

We have varied jobs: one of us is a chemist,

Another a hunter, a zookeeper, a singer,

The oldest of us is a former adventurer!

We do share a goal - we're not that diverse:

Help you find your way (if you're not scared of spiders...)

Who are we?

1 Answer 1


These bros may be

web browsers - fits with others exist, sharing a goal, and finding your way if not afraid of spiders.

Casually employing the descriptions:

Chrome - to cover with the element chromium, so perhaps a chemist.
Safari - a hunter may be employed on this.
Firefox - another name for the red panda, an endangered species, though common in zoos.
Opera - a singer will be employed here.
Internet explorer - explorer being the adventurer (maybe being edged out by MS, so ex).

  • $\begingroup$ Good job! The "casual" part was actually refering to the defenition of "browsing" which can mean searching in a idle way, but other than that, perfect ! $\endgroup$
