Google Doodle celebrates World Wide Web's 30th Birthday

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the birth of the World Wide Web, Google celebrates with a doodle recalling the situation in its infancy.

On March 12, 1989, British physicist Tim Berners-Lee, who worked for CERN's physics laboratory in Europe, proposed a decentralized information management system. He pointed to the birth of the World Wide Web, which is now used by billions of people.

His proposal had a hypertext link system, the ability to click on the keywords of a page and access directly to the page dedicated to them, and thus to connect to other pages.

Google Doodle illustrates this technological step with an animation showing graphic blocks that were previously common. A balloon in the center is slowly processed on a desktop monitor to bring us back to an era of slower download speeds.

"Not to be confused with the Internet, which has evolved since the 1960s, the World Wide Web is an online application based on innovations such as HTML," URLs "and the HTTP or hypertext transfer protocol", Google says blog entry.

In a letter published Monday, Berners-Lee praised the opportunities created by the Web, giving voice to marginalized groups and facilitating everyday life. But he warned that "it also created an opportunity for fraudsters, gave voice to those who spread hatred and facilitated all kinds of crimes."
