Web button with push-button functionality: example on the website of JPAC which links originally to [1].

Web buttons, button graphics, web badges or stickers are pictures in some World Wide Web pages which are typically used to advertise programs that were used to create or host the site (for example, MediaWiki sites often have a "Powered by Mediawiki" button on the bottom right corner of the page), programs that are recommended to view the site, or that the site passes World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) HTML validation.

The buttons are linked to the advertised sites. These were first popularized as "Best viewed in..." buttons by Netscape and Microsoft during the browser wars.
