History

.In March 1989, Sir Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal[5] that referenced ENQUIRE, a database and software project he had built in 1980, and described a more elaborate information management system.^ Default routes can be built manually (using the tools provided with the IP software in use on the local system), or can be assigned during system boot (using a protocol such as BOOTP or DHCP).
  • The Internet Protocol 3 February 2010 16:016 UTC www.acsa.net [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.With help from Robert Cailliau, he published a more formal proposal (on November 12, 1990) to build a "Hypertext project" called "WorldWideWeb" (one word, also "W3") as a "web" of "hypertext documents" to be viewed by "browsers", using a client-server architecture.^ To get information from the Web, a Web client software (usually called a browser ) sends requests to a Web server .
  • The Internet Protocol 3 February 2010 16:016 UTC www.acsa.net [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ TCP/IP Services and Client/Server Operation (Page 1 of 3) TCP/IP is most often studied in terms of its layer-based architecture and the protocols that it provides at those different layers.

  • The Internet Protocol 3 February 2010 16:016 UTC www.acsa.net [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[2] .This proposal estimated that a read-only web would be developed within three months and that it would take six months to achieve, "the creation of new links and new material by readers, [so that] authorship becomes universal" as well as "the automatic notification of a reader when new material of interest to him/her has become available". See Web 2.0 and RSS/Atom, which have taken a little longer to mature.^ Only a few months previously, on June 1, 2001, a new Defense Department directive on dealing with domestic hijackings was issued under Fry’s signature (see June 1, 2001 ).

The proposal had been modeled after the Dynatext SGML reader, by Electronic Book Technology, a spin-off from the Institute for Research in Information and Scholarship at Brown University. .The Dynatext system, licensed by CERN, was technically advanced and was a key player in the extension of SGML ISO 8879:1986 to Hypermedia within HyTime, but it was considered too expensive and had an inappropriate licensing policy for use in the general high energy physics community, namely a fee for each document and each document alteration.^ RFC 2748 0x001-0x3FF: COPS extension document 0x4000-0x7FFF: Private Use 0x8000-0xFFFF: FCFS (section 6) .

This NeXT Computer used by Sir Tim Berners-Lee at CERN became the first web server.
.A NeXT Computer was used by Berners-Lee as the world's first web server and also to write the first web browser, WorldWideWeb, in 1990. By Christmas 1990, Berners-Lee had built all the tools necessary for a working Web:[6] the first web browser (which was a web editor as well), the first web server, and the first web pages[7] which described the project itself.^ Notes Since the datagram may be sent over a variety of different devices on the way to its final destination, all of the intermediary systems (as well as the destination) must support the same version of IP as the one used to create the datagram in the first place.

^ Hosts on an IP network exchange information using IP datagrams, which include both the units of data that contain whatever information is being exchanged and the header fields that describe that information (as well as describing the datagram itself).

  • The Internet Protocol 3 February 2010 16:016 UTC www.acsa.net [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[8] This date also marked the debut of the Web as a publicly available service on the Internet. .The first server outside Europe was set up at SLAC in December 1992.[9] The crucial underlying concept of hypertext originated with older projects from the 1960s, such as the Hypertext Editing System (HES) at Brown University--- among others Ted Nelson and Andries van Dam--- Ted Nelson's Project Xanadu and Douglas Engelbart's oN-Line System (NLS).^ Medical workers at the first triage area set up outside the Pentagon after it is attacked.

Both Nelson and Engelbart were in turn inspired by Vannevar Bush's microfilm-based "memex," which was described in the 1945 essay "As We May Think".[citation needed]
Berners-Lee's breakthrough was to marry hypertext to the Internet. .In his book Weaving The Web, he explains that he had repeatedly suggested that a marriage between the two technologies was possible to members of both technical communities, but when no one took up his invitation, he finally tackled the project himself.^ RFC 791 states that the last two bits are unused, although RFC 1349 added the Minimize Cost Type-of-Service flag, which used up one of them.

.In the process, he developed a system of globally unique identifiers for resources on the Web and elsewhere: the Universal Document Identifier (UDI) later known as Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and Uniform Resource Identifier (URI); and the publishing language HyperText Markup Language (HTML); and the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).^ Transfers hypertext documents between hosts; implements the World Wide Web.

This made it possible for someone to link to another resource without action by the owner of that resource. It also significantly reduced the difficulty of implementing web servers and browsers (in comparison to earlier systems), but in turn presented the chronic problem of link rot. .Unlike predecessors such as HyperCard, the World Wide Web was non-proprietary, making it possible to develop servers and clients independently and to add extensions without licensing restrictions.^ That doesn't actually shed any light, logically speaking, on whether it actually was a greater tragedy, but it does illuminate the possible motives for making such a statement.

An early popular web browser was ViolaWWW, which was based upon HyperCard.
.Scholars generally agree that a turning point for the World Wide Web began with the introduction[12] of the Mosaic web browser[13] in 1993, a graphical browser developed by a team at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (NCSA-UIUC), led by Marc Andreessen.^ It also includes numerous high-level applications, some of which are well-known by Internet users who may not realize they are part of TCP/IP, such as HTTP (which runs the World Wide Web) and FTP .

Making it available on the Internet created what Tim Berners-Lee first called the WorldWideWeb (in its original CamelCase, which was subsequently discarded) in November 1990.[2]

What does W3 define?

W3, or WWW, represents many concepts:
  • the idea of a boundless world of information interconnected by hypertext links for easy point-and-click access;
  • the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) concept, an addressing system that the project implemented to make this world possible, despite many different protocols;
  • the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), a network protocol used to transfer web pages;
  • the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) a content formatting framework that every WWW client can understand, and is used for the formatting of text, menus and simple on-line help information across the net;

Linking

Web browsers often prepend this 'scheme' part to URLs too, if it is omitted. Despite this, Berners-Lee himself has admitted that the two 'forward slashes' (//) were in fact initially unnecessary[24]. In overview, RFC 2396 defined web URLs to have the following form: <scheme>://<authority><path>?<query>#<fragment>. Here <authority> is for example the web server (like www.example.com), and <path> identifies the web page. .The web server processes the <query>, which can be data sent via a form, e.g., terms sent to a search engine, and the returned page depends on it.^ It finds the images by feeding random words into various search engines, and pulling images (or sections of images) out of the pages returned."

Standards

.Many formal standards and other technical specifications define the operation of different aspects of the World Wide Web, the Internet, and computer information exchange.^ RFC 3095 0-127: Standards Track RFC 128-254: Other specs that meet this requirement such as an Informational RFC .
  • IANA — Protocol Registries 3 February 2010 16:016 UTC www.iana.org [Source type: Reference]

^ IETF standards-track specifications; 128-254: All other specifications .

Usually, when web standards are discussed, the following publications are seen as foundational:
Additional publications provide definitions of other essential technologies for the World Wide Web, including, but not limited to, the following:
.
  • Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), which is a universal system for referencing resources on the Internet, such as hypertext documents and images.^ Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Schemes .
    • IANA — Protocol Registries 3 February 2010 16:016 UTC www.iana.org [Source type: Reference]

    URIs, often called URLs, are defined by the IETF's RFC 3986 / STD 66: Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax, as well as its predecessors and numerous URI scheme-defining RFCs;
  • HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), especially as defined by RFC 2616: HTTP/1.1 and RFC 2617: HTTP Authentication, which specify how the browser and server authenticate each other.

Accessibility

Access to the Web is for everyone regardless of disability including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, or neurological. Accessibility features also help others with temporary disabilities like a broken arm or the aging population as their abilities change.[52] .The Web is used for receiving information as well as providing information and interacting with society, making it essential that the Web be accessible in order to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities.^ In this new age of the Internet, I need the information and opportunities that e-mail marketing provides.

[53] Tim Berners-Lee once noted, "The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."[52] Many countries regulate web accessibility as a requirement for websites.[54] .International cooperation in the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative led to simple guidelines that web content authors as well as software developers can use to make the Web accessible to persons who may or may not be using assistive technology.^ It also includes numerous high-level applications, some of which are well-known by Internet users who may not realize they are part of TCP/IP, such as HTTP (which runs the World Wide Web) and FTP .

Internationalization

The W3C Internationalization Activity assures that web technology will work in all languages, scripts, and cultures.[56] .Beginning in 2004 or 2005, Unicode gained ground and eventually in December 2007 surpassed both ASCII and Western European as the Web's most frequently used character encoding.^ HELL.com it used to be the greatest thing in the world, it was a portal to some of the most creative web sites that i had ever seen, now they sell webmail.
  • Worldwide Interweb Hobo Stew 25 September 2009 1:32 UTC bbs.tastytronic.net [Source type: General]

[57] Originally RFC 3986 allowed resources to be identified by URI in a subset of US-ASCII. RFC 3987 allows more characters—any character in the Universal Character Set—and now a resource can be identified by IRI in any language.[58]

Statistics

According to a 2001 study, there were massively more than 550 billion documents on the Web, mostly in the invisible Web, or deep Web.[59] A 2002 survey of 2,024 million Web pages[60] determined that by far the most Web content was in English: 56.4%; next were pages in German (7.7%), French (5.6%), and Japanese (4.9%). .A more recent study, which used Web searches in 75 different languages to sample the Web, determined that there were over 11.5 billion Web pages in the publicly indexable Web as of the end of January 2005.[61] As of March 2009, the indexable web contains at least 25.21 billion pages.^ Yeah, I mean, the fact that it is "meat juice" in a can is the worst part, but at least like, I'm used to consuming chicken and cow juice, albeit in more modest quantities.

Speed issues

.Frustration over congestion issues in the Internet infrastructure and the high latency that results in slow browsing has led to an alternative, pejorative name for the World Wide Web: the World Wide Wait.^ Are the Internet and the World Wide Web the Same Thing?
  • wiseGEEK: Internet and Computers 28 January 2010 0:00 UTC www.wisegeek.com [Source type: General]

[65] Speeding up the Internet is an ongoing discussion over the use of peering and QoS technologies. Other solutions to reduce the World Wide Wait can be found at W3C.[66] Standard guidelines for ideal Web response times are:[67]
  • 0.1 second (one tenth of a second). Ideal response time. The user doesn't sense any interruption.
  • 1 second. Highest acceptable response time. Download times above 1 second interrupt the user experience.
  • 10 seconds. Unacceptable response time. The user experience is interrupted and the user is likely to leave the site or system.

Caching

If a user revisits a Web page after only a short interval, the page data may not need to be re-obtained from the source Web server. .Almost all web browsers cache recently obtained data, usually on the local hard drive.^ How Do I Transfer Data from a Computer to an External Hard Drive?
  • wiseGEEK: Internet and Computers 28 January 2010 0:00 UTC www.wisegeek.com [Source type: General]

HTTP requests sent by a browser will usually only ask for data that has changed since the last download. If the locally cached data are still current, it will be reused. Caching helps reduce the amount of Web traffic on the Internet. The decision about expiration is made independently for each downloaded file, whether image, stylesheet, JavaScript, HTML, or whatever other content the site may provide. Thus even on sites with highly dynamic content, many of the basic resources only need to be refreshed occasionally. .Web site designers find it worthwhile to collate resources such as CSS data and JavaScript into a few site-wide files so that they can be cached efficiently.^ HELL.com it used to be the greatest thing in the world, it was a portal to some of the most creative web sites that i had ever seen, now they sell webmail.
  • Worldwide Interweb Hobo Stew 25 September 2009 1:32 UTC bbs.tastytronic.net [Source type: General]

This helps reduce page download times and lowers demands on the Web server.
There are other components of the Internet that can cache Web content. Corporate and academic firewalls often cache Web resources requested by one user for the benefit of all. (See also Caching proxy server.) .Some search engines also store cached content from websites.^ What are some Ways to Improve Search Engine Ranking?
  • wiseGEEK: Internet and Computers 28 January 2010 0:00 UTC www.wisegeek.com [Source type: General]

.Apart from the facilities built into Web servers that can determine when files have been updated and so need to be re-sent, designers of dynamically generated Web pages can control the HTTP headers sent back to requesting users, so that transient or sensitive pages are not cached.^ What is a Dynamic Web Page?
  • wiseGEEK: Internet and Computers 28 January 2010 0:00 UTC www.wisegeek.com [Source type: General]

Internet banking and news sites frequently use this facility. Data requested with an HTTP 'GET' is likely to be cached if other conditions are met; data obtained in response to a 'POST' is assumed to depend on the data that was POSTed and so is not cached.

The World Wide Web ("WWW" or "The Web") is the part of the Internet that contains websites and webpages. It was invented in 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. Sir Tim Berners-Lee created a new language called HTML. Websites are composed of pages linked by hypertext links. They are all written in HTML.

The World Wide Web is not used to describe HTML webpages that are not part of the Internet.

In order to see the World Wide Web one needs a computer and a computer program called a web browser. Many companies nowadays offer free website hosting allowing one to make websites that can be displayed on the WWW like any other domain (www.domain-name.com) site. These sites usually make money from advertisements instead of fees.
