The Original World Wide Web

Home » Uncategorized » The Original World Wide Web


This year marks the 25th anniversary of the world wide web.

Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist at CERN, invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989, in an effort to solve the problem of information sharing between scientists around the world.

It’s amazing to think just how far the web has come in the past 25 years. We now take for granted pictures, responsive layouts and every design you can imagine.

But the web started out very different. The purpose of the first website was to describe the World Wide Web project and was hosted on a NeXt computer at CERN.

The first website was very simple, green text on a black background with command prompt navigation.
