On March 12, 1989 Tim Berners-Lee, a British physicist who was employed under Europe’s physics lab CERN, proposed a decentralised system of information management.
This event is signaled as the birth of the World Wide Web that is now an inevitable part of billions of people.
Berners-Lee’s proposed system had system of hypertext links, had an option of clicking key words on one page and being directly led to the page dedicated to them, thus connecting users to other pages.
In its latest Doodle, Google honours this technology milestone with an animation depicting block graphics that were common earlier. A globe placed at the center of the Doodle appears slowly on a desktop monitor to take us back to a slower download speed era.
“Not to be confused with the internet, which had been evolving since the 1960s, the World Wide Web is an online application built upon innovations like HTML language, URL “addresses,” and hypertext transfer protocol, or HTTP”, says Google in a blog post.
