World Wide Web (WWW or just “the Web”)

Now called the web. The web is made up of all the websites and their web pages found on the internet. Your browser uses the internet to access the web. At last count, the web is home to over 2 billion websites.

The web was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989. He came up with the three main technologies that enable computers to understand each other. When you tap a link on a web page you are using one of these technologies. Deceptively simple, but it was groundbreaking technology when it was invented and has profoundly changed the world.
