On the 30th anniversary of the birth of the World Wide Web, Google is celebrating it with a doodle that is a reminder of how things were like in its early years.
On March 12, 1989, British physicist Tim Berners-Lee, working for Europe's physics lab CERN, proposed a decentralised system of information management. It signalled the birth of the World Wide Web that is now used by billions of people. His proposal had a system of hypertext links, the possibility of clicking keywords on one page and being led directly to the page dedicated to them, thus connecting to other pages.
The World Wide Web is an online application built upon innovations like HTML language, URL "addresses," and hypertext transfer protocol, or HTTP", says Google in a blog post. Google is marking the day with a special doodle. “the browser was released outside CERN in 1991, first to research institutions, and then to the general public in August 1991. WWW has been central to the development of the age of information. It is the primary tool people use to interact on the Internet,”
