Many modern users think that the Internet has always been — meanwhile, the usual web pages with hyperlinks appeared relatively recently. Today, March 12, the world wide web celebrates its thirtieth anniversary. Google Corporation, the Creator of the popular Chrome browser, decided to mark a significant event.
The "father" of the world wide web became a British specialist in the field of computer science sir Timothy Berners-Lee. In 1989, he proposed to the management of the Swiss laboratory CERN a project for the publication of hypertext documents linked by hyperlinks. This approach made it much easier to find and store information in the internal network of the laboratory, providing access to data from any PC connected to the world wide web (World Wide Web or WWW).
Later the inventor realized they invented the block diagram of the completed project, wrote the language HTML, as well as applications under the names HTTP and WorldWideWeb.app. The latter was the first web browser with a page editor function. The first external web servers began to function fully in 1993.
"In 1993, I managed to convince CERN to declare WWW a technology that will be available to everyone and always, without any license fees. This solution allowed tens of thousands of people to start building a web together. Today, about 40% of the world's population use it, " the inventor wrote in his blog 25 years later.
Google search giant celebrated the anniversary of the world wide web with the original design of its main page. When you click on the address google.com users meets retro-PK, drawn in their style.
To date, the Internet has about two billion sites. It is important to note that unlike the Internet, which has evolved since the 1960s, the World Wide Web is an online application based on technologies such as HTML language, URLs, and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).
