20 to 30 years ago, when you needed to find any information – you used to go to a library of books and there was information on almost any topic. But today we are doing what we are doing-sitting in front of a computer device and connecting online to find any information, which is much more powerful than any library in the world. You can access this information at any time from anywhere, anytime, and this is the World Wide Web. Today we are so much dependent on the web that we can not live without the web. Anyway, it’s just 20 years ago-when the web was invented. But in a short span of time it gets much popularity, and becomes a part of our daily lives. So let’s start by looking at all the known information about Friends, the World Wide Web.
What is the difference between web and net?
Many think that the web and the internet are the same thing. And as long as you are not clear about this matter, it will not be possible to proceed in the tune. So let’s get to know this matter well.
The Internet – A vast network of world wide computers. There may be a lot of work on the Internet (these are called applications) and Web is one of those tasks. When you send an email to someone, you are using the internet-why not send your message through a connection to another computer. Again, when you are chatting with someone, you are still using the Internet – why your messaging is repeated and sent through the network. But when you update your blog or search for something on Google, then the web you use on the Internet. For more information about the Internet, read my article “How Does the Internet Work?”
The World Wide Web is a great source of text pages, digital photographs, music files, videos, and animations across the globe, which you can access on the Internet. The most important thing about the World Wide Web is that each of its information is related to each other. The most basic tool to create web pages is text pages (such as this page), also known as webpage. Many webpage collections on a computer are called websites. Each webpage (along with this page) has highlighted phrases that are called links (or hypertext links). Another link can be accessed by clicking on any link, and thus the process continues.
How do computers speak one language to each other?
The most important thing on the Internet is that every computer on the Internet can exchange information with each other. And this is the most important thing on the Internet. If the back-of-the-counter computers were to be seen, the computers, in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, had the ability to exchange information among themselves. Each machine was manufactured by different manufacturers and no one was able to understand the language of another machine. In the 1970s personal computers did not have the power to run a common program. Each computer could run only those programs which were specifically written for them. Things like email and chat were then impossible.
But in the year 1980, a large computer company, IBM, earned a reputation for the development of their new personal computer. Most people cloned their computers and soon most of the personal computers started working in the same way. After that Microsoft developed a software called Windows. IBM computers were able to run all the computers in the same program as Windows enabled. But even then computers were not so easy to talk to each other. For example, large computer machines with personal computers and computers of science research could not establish relationships. So how could the computers of these different languages be able to talk to each other?
This great problem is solved by an English computer scientist-named Tim Berners-Lee. In the 1980s, he worked in a European laboratory laboratory, where people from different universities of the world worked, and each worked with a dishonest computer in different languages. As a result, it was not possible to share information about their important research among the people. Because their computers were not able to exchange information with each other. And then Tim Berners-Lee discovered a surprise, which made it possible to talk to each computer.
