Web (WWW, World Wide Web) is information medium covering the entire globe from which individuals can interact through the computers which are internet connected. The web and internet are not alike terms instead the service is known as web and operates the internet.
The first description of machines resembling computers can be found in a short story written by Murray Leinster in the year 1946, where he described computers that he called Logics in everyone’s house, with each one of it having an access to a main device to receive information.
Forty years later in the year 1980, Tim Berners Lee was on a project named ‘Enquire’ (which included the database and software of people working in the same region as of him). During this time, he was involved in carrying out experiments with hypertexts, which are something that is a text and displays on devices which use hyperlinks. Then in the year 1989 he proposed the idea of centralised database and continued to experiment on major web components such as HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), URL (Uniform Resource Locator) and web browsers. Ultimately on 8th June 1991, the World Wide Web project was introduced to the globe and also in the same year the description of HTML was publicly released.
Then the World Wide Web formed the conventional tool during the years 1995–2000 popularly known as the ‘internet boom’. Huge amounts of money were invested by the investors to the web as the stock prices of the company would rise very high if it was displayed on the web. This growth in the area stroked the commercial expansion of the Internet since the arrival of the World Wide Web. The most recent advancement involves access of it to mobiles and is expected to surpass desktop in the recent years.
