World Wide Web (WWW)

The WWW was devel­oped by the Euro­pean Research Centre for Nuclear Physics (CERN) in Lau­sanne (Switzer­land) as a hyper­media system for the Internet in 1993. The other agency involved in this devel­op­ment was the NCSA (National Center for Super­com­puting Appli­ca­tions, Uni­ver­sity of Illi­nois, USA). By now, the WWW Con­sor­tium (W3C) is devel­oping the WWW further.
