Did you see Google Doodle today? There is an old computer that you see as soon as your Google homepage pops up.
On March 12, 2019. Google is celebrating 30 years of the World Wide Web, which is an invention that made us into the human beings we are today.
Noted English Scientist, Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while being employed at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. The browser was released outside CERN in 1991, first to other research institutions starting in January 1991 and to the general public on the Internet in August 1991. The World Wide Web has been central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.
The World Wide Web (WWW), commonly known as the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators that we commonly refer to as URLs.
The resources of the WWW may be accessed by users via a software application called a web browser.
Web resources may be any type of downloadable media, but web pages are hypertext media which have been formatted in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Such formatting allows for embedded hyperlinks which contain URLs and permit users to easily navigate to other web resources. In addition to text, web pages may contain images, video, audio, and software components that are rendered in the user’s web browser as coherent pages of multimedia content.
And plus, as you read the above information, we think we need not mention the importance of WWW today, as most of your day-to-day activities from text search to payments depend on it today.
