WorldWideWeb view the Web like 1990


WorldWideWeb: CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) re-created the world's first web browser.

This means that you can now see what navigation on the World Wide Web was like in 1990, using an application called WorldWideWeb.

As you may know, the tissue was born in a CERN lab. In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal for "a large hypertext database with typed links". So until the end of 1990, there were all the necessary elements that we still use today.

That is, HTTP, HTML, software for servers, servers and the first web pages. To navigate all these wonders you needed an app called WorldWideWeb:

WorldWideWeb

It was a web browser as well as a web editor together. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the WWW, CERN has relaunched the WorldWideWeb.

If you are interested, you can try WorldWideWeb through your browser.

Simply open this page and you will see the Web as seen by Tim Berners-Lee and his colleagues in 1990. To mention that at that time, there were very few pages to visit.

What is immediately obvious is the lack of any color from the page. Yes, at that time there were no images, videos, GIFs and emojis that we all take for granted today.

There is also no address bar at all, so you will have to sweat to browse the internet.

How can you do that? As in the image above, select "Document" from the left sidebar, click "Open from full document reference", enter the URL you want to visit in the "Reference" field and then click "Open".

E? Technology!
