The World Wide Web is the combination of four basic ideas 1. Hypertext, that is the ability, in a computer environment, to move from one part of a document to another or from one document to another through internal connections among these documents are called hyperlink hyperlink, or simply a link, is a reference in a hypertext document to another document or other resource 2.

He directs the World Wide Web Consortium, an open forum of companies and organizations with the mission to lead the Web to its full potential. short biography With a background of system design in real-time communications and text processing software development, in 1989 he invented the World Wide Web, an internet-based hypermedia initiative for global information sharing. while working at CERN, the European Particle Physics Laboratory. He wrote the first web client (browser-editor) and server in 1990. Before coming to CERN, Tim worked with Image Computer Systems, of Ferndown, Dorset, England and before that as a principal engineer with Plessey Telecommunications, in Poole, England.
