Yesterday, the World Wide Web (or the web, as we usually call it now) turned 30! On March 12, 1989, British engineer and computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal for what became the World Wide Web. Many people may think the internet and the web are the same thing, but they aren’t. The internet is the networking infrastructure connecting computers across the world, while the World Wide Web is the worldwide collection of text pages, digital photographs, music files, videos, and animations. You access the content on the World Wide Web over the internet.
