More About World Wide Web Day 🌎

The World Wide Web is a revolutionary technology that led to the creation of thousands of other inventions that rule the world today. However, it took a few years before the World Wide Web was noticed by the masses. The proposal for the WWW was developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 and was further enhanced with the help of Robert Cailliau, a Belgian informatics engineer and computer scientist. Together, they were able to develop the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and then set it up for release in early 1992. Like many other great technologies, the WWW was not initially meant for the public and was devised to be utilized by physicists to share data. However, when the World Wide Web did reach the general public, it was an instant hit. At that time, it was merely a luxury, but today it’s a necessity. The popularity of the platform took off when the first website was produced and when photos started appearing on the web. The first photo was uploaded by Berners-Lee in 1992. Since then, there has been no stopping the World Wide Web and it furthermore proved to be the fastest-growing medium of communication by accumulating millions of active users by the mid-1990s. But this was just the beginning β€” by the 21st century, web usage transcended into advanced smartphones that operated more or less like computers. Today, the World Wide Web can be accessed through gaming devices, cell phones, laptops, and even watches.
