In the beginning of this month in 1991
the very first website was launched
on the World Wide Web.

The internet already existed quite a while,
but the browsable interface with websites
that can be visited by browsers
was developed by Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau.
The World Wide Web Project was in development
since approximately 1989.
In 1990 the first HTML browser named
WorldWideWeb was developed.
Then since 1991 the 3 W’s would make it’s way
to more and more computers.

The 90ies was a decade in which many other means
of connecting computers would gradually become less popular.
The World Wide Web was what even computer illiterates
could use for chatting strangers and posting cute cat pictures.
