English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while working at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. With help from his colleague and fellow hypertext enthusiast Robert Cailliau he published a more formal proposal on 12 November 1990 to build a “Hypertext project” called “WorldWideWeb” (one word) as a “web” of “hypertext documents” to be viewed by “browsers” using a client–server architecture.

The WWW or 3w has been central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.

The web was made public in April 1993, after which the first search engine was launched called Mosaic.

“There are very few innovations that have truly changed everything,” said Jeff Jaffe, CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium. “The Web is the most impactful innovation of our time.”

Happy 30th Anniversary to the World Wide Web!
