30th Happy Birthday World Wide Web
We all send birthday wishes to all our friends and loved ones mainly through text messages and calls but now-a-days people uses social media. But most of us forgot that today is the 30th Happy Birthday World Wide Web where Google is celebrating in its own doddle. So let us wish the two brilliant fathers “Tim Berners-Lee” and “Robert Cailliau” who invented the WWW or Web way back in 1990. It was indeed the invention of the century as the World Wide Web is the most used interface throughout the globe. It should be taken as a note that without the Web it would simply be much more hectic to communicate or in our case, which is making wishes to our loved ones.
Facts To Know About: “WWW”
Tim Berners-Lee & Robert Cailliau invented the World Wide Web which we now days know as the Web way back in 1990. While working at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) in 1989 both proposed for the hypertext systems. In 1990 both of the geniuses joined forces and wrote a joint proposal of the “World Wide Web” which was used for the first time ever. In the mid 1990 & 1991 Tim Berners-Lee wrote the first-web browser.
Now a days most of the people uses the term “Web” & “Internet” very extensively but both the term has a completely different meaning to it.
The World Wide Web is an application, built using the hypertext transfer protocol or “HTTP” to transfer data and the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) code to create Web pages and content which is basically a user interface for the Internet. Whereas the Internet is the network of connections between computers, smart phones and other smart devices which are connected internally.
The software engineer Tim Berners-Lee submitted a proposal that explained the very basis of how the user interface would work on March 12,1989. The proposal described a database using many hyper-links to help researchers at the CERN nuclear Physics Laboratory to share documents in a much easy fashion. He suggested the proposal to the engineers at the Advanced Research Agency (ARPA) which is now called Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or (DARPA).
Tim Berners-Lee then spent the next 2 years developing HTML,HTTP and the very fast Web browser and the webpage editor which is the WorldWideWeb.app. By 1991 the Web had been successfully launched. 30 years later, WWW has completely changed our culture.
It has probably changed how we communicate, how we meet new people, how we shop, how we vote, how we learn & play and maybe even how we think and create.
