The Evolution of the World Wide Web

Read the latest blog titled,


To begin with, we rely on the internet for almost everything. Right from managing our money, searching for jobs, representing ourselves professionally as well as keeping contact with family and friends across the country or even across the world. It is also used to research, learn, share information, personally as well as professionally.

The use of the internet for businesses is basically for collaborating across offices and even across the hall. While it handles their financial transactions in seconds, communication for them with the help of the internet is instantaneous. Even the local and federal governments rely on the internet to manage their daily operations.

In the beginning, the World Wide Web was introduced as a medium for sharing scientific and research documents. It was specifically used by government organizations and academic institutions to give and receive information. But with the passage of time, it evolved and crossed the limits defined for it. The change that has been observed in the world of internet is quite distinctive to not notice.

Looking at all the transformation the internet has had and considering its existence has just been barely for fifty years, and the world wide web being thirty, but if either were to disappear, modern business would nothing but cease.

About the World Wide Web

The World Wide Web is a network of online content that is formatted in HTML and accessed via HTTP. The term refers to all the interlinked HTML pages that can be accessed over the internet. It is technically all the web pages, videos, pictures and other online content that can be accessed via a web browser. The world wide web, or WWW, was first created as a method to navigate the now extensive system of connected computers. It was designed by Tim Berners-Lee through a rudimentary hypertext program called Enquire.

The WWW is what most people think of as the internet. But as a matter of fact, the internet is the underlying network connection that allows us to send an email and access the world wide web. Web earlier was a collection of text-based sites hosted by organizations that were technically able enough to set up a web server and learn HTML. Since then, it has only continued to evolve the original design, and now includes many other useful elements like social media and user-generated content that requires minimal technical skills to use.

Origin of the World Wide Web

The WWW was introduced and originated by a contractor named Tim Berners-Lee who worked with the European Organization for Nuclear Research developed Enquire-a rudimentary hypertext program. This program was designed in a way in order to make information readily available to users. It also focused on allowing a user to explore relationships between different pages by clicking to get to a different section of a website.
