The first World Wide Web proposal was created in 1989 by the British scientist Tim Berners-Lee. With the help of Robert Cailliau, a Belgian systems engineer, Tim Berners-Lee developed an outline of the concepts of the web. The purpose of creating the World Wide Web was to allow scientists to share and access information around the world.

The World Wide Web has evolved into a part of everyday life and is available for anyone to use. Information can be shared globally in a matter of seconds. The web has grown from being a tool for sharing information to now including a place for games and social media.
