The World Wide Web is the name given to all parts of the Internet that can be accessed with a web browser software. Until now there are a few web browser software that is often used include Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera.

What is the World Wide Web?

"World Wide Web" (WWW) or Web for short, consists of millions of web sites (website) and every web site comprises many web pages (webpage). These web pages are scattered all over the world on the computers server connected to the Internet. Sites such as YAHOO or MICROSOFT are the web sites that have been around longer and provides a lot of facilities so that the pages in the site is also very much. So, have a second and Imagine yourself the total number of web pages on the internet?.

Web Browser

Web page is a page that looks from a web browser software and there are some web browser software that is often used today such as; Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome Google, Opera, TrendOne, Safari and the previously made first is Netscape Navigator. These page such as word-processing document files, unless contained therein can be text, images and even animation. To be able to make this web page you have to have knowledge of the script HTML (hyper-text markup language). HTML will be discussed in greater detail in other sections of this course.

Hyperlinks Connecting

Website consists of several inter-related web pages (linked) from each other in a certain way. Most people are still confused by this definition so that complicates further understanding. One advantage of the World Wide Web is a hyperlink. Hyperlinks are text (usually) blue and (usually) underlined that can be clicked and will lead to other web pages. These hyperlinks could be placed anywhere on the web page and should be set to go to anywhere across the web. When you visit a web page, you can directly clicking on a hyperlink and it will take the computer (download) sites / pages linked on the hyperlink and display it in a web browser.
Generally, web site designers put a lot of hyperlinks on their website to help visitors find your site to other sites related to the site. These hyperlinks can connect to other sites on other servers around the world.

The World Wide Web History

Web history began at the "European Laboratory for Particle Physics" or known as "CERN", in Geneva town near the border of France and Switzerland. "CERN" is an organization founded by 18 countries in Europe. On March 1989, Tim Berners and other researchers from "CERN" propose a protocol on the Internet information distribution system that allows to its members are scattered around the world share information and even to display the information in graphical form.
The first Web browser was made on the basis of the text. To declare a link, made a row of numbers that is similar to a menu. Users type a number to navigate the Web. Most of the software created for computers that use the UNIX Operating System, and not much can be done by computer users who have been using the current Windows. But all this changed after the emergence of the "NCSA Mosaic" web browser (National Center for Supercomputing Applications).

The World Wide Web Developed

In May 1993, Marc Andreesen and some students from the "NCSA Mosaic" Web browser to make the "X-Windows System" based graphics and easy to use. Within a few months, "NCSA Mosaic" has attracted attention from both the old users and new users on the Internet. Then "NCSA Mosaic" develop other versions of UNIX-based computers, NeXT, "Windows and Macintosh".
In 1994, Marc Andreesen left NCSA, and then with Jim Clark, one of the founders of "Silicon Graphics", made the first version of "Netscape". The presence of these "Netscape" replace Mosaic popularity as Web browsers and even until today Netscape is a widely used browser after Internet Explorer from Microsoft.
In the same year "CERN" and "MIT" establish a consortium called the "World Wide Web Consortium" (W3C), which served to develop standards for Web technologies.
At the beginning of its development, while text-based browsers still there are only about 50 websites. At the end of 1995 this number had grown to about 300,000 websites. And estimated current user amount to achieve the site has about 30 million users worldwide.
