What is claimed is: A terminal appliance for receiving and displaying information in page form from a network, the appliance comprising: A terminal appliance as recited in claim 1, wherein: A terminal appliance as recited in claim 1, further comprising means for storing a Web browser program, meta-information about links, fonts, or colors, or JAVA program code.
The corridor where WWW was born. CERNground floor of building No. Bythe global Internet began to proliferate in Europe and the Domain Name System upon which the Uniform Resource Locator is built came into being. There is no reason, the proposal continues, why such hypertext links could not encompass multimedia documents including graphics, speech and video, so that Berners-Lee goes on to use the term hypermedia.
By ChristmasBerners-Lee had built all the tools necessary for a working Web: The first web site,  which described the project itself, was published on 20 December Jones stored it on a magneto-optical drive and on his NeXT computer.
As another example of such confusion, several news media reported that the first photo on the Web was published by Berners-Lee inan image of the CERN house band Les Horribles Cernettes taken by Silvano de Gennaro; Gennaro has disclaimed this story, writing that media were "totally distorting our words for the sake of cheap sensationalism.
Accounts differ substantially as to the date of this event. Both Nelson and Engelbart were in turn inspired by Vannevar Bush 's microfilm -based memexwhich was described in the essay " As We May Think ".
In his book Weaving The Webhe explains that he had repeatedly suggested that a marriage between the two technologies was possible to members of both technical communities, but when no one took up his invitation, he finally assumed the project himself.
In the process, he developed three essential technologies: The Web required only unidirectional links rather than bidirectional ones, making it possible for someone to link to another resource without action by the owner of that resource. It also significantly reduced the difficulty of implementing web servers and browsers in comparison to earlier systemsbut in turn presented the chronic problem of link rot.
Unlike predecessors such as HyperCardthe World Wide Web was non-proprietary, making it possible to develop servers and clients independently and to add extensions without licensing restrictions.
Mosaic's graphical user interface allowed the Web to become, by far, the most popular Internet protocol. By the end ofthe total number of websites was still relatively small, but many notable websites were already active that foreshadowed or inspired today's most popular services.
Connected by the Internet, other websites were created around the world. This motivated international standards development for protocols and formatting.
Berners-Lee continued to stay involved in guiding the development of web standards, such as the markup languages to compose web pages and he advocated his vision of a Semantic Web. The World Wide Web enabled the spread of information over the Internet through an easy-to-use and flexible format.
It thus played an important role in popularising use of the Internet. The advent of the Mosaic web browser helped to make the web much more usable, to include the display of images and moving images GIFs.
The terms Internet and World Wide Web are often used without much distinction. However, the two are not the same. The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks. In contrast, the World Wide Web is a global collection of documents and other resourceslinked by hyperlinks and URIs.
The web browser then initiates a series of background communication messages to fetch and display the requested page. In the s, using a browser to view web pages—and to move from one web page to another through hyperlinks—came to be known as 'browsing,' 'web surfing' after channel surfingor 'navigating the Web'.
Early studies of this new behaviour investigated user patterns in using web browsers. One study, for example, found five user patterns: The browser resolves the server name of the URL www.
This lookup returns an IP address such as The browser then requests the resource by sending an HTTP request across the Internet to the computer at that address. It requests service from a specific TCP port number that is well known for the HTTP service, so that the receiving host can distinguish an HTTP request from other network protocols it may be servicing.
The HTTP protocol normally uses port number The content of the HTTP request can be as simple as two lines of text: If the web server can fulfil the request it sends an HTTP response back to the browser indicating success:A World Wide Web terminal appliance utilizes a disk drive for local storage of Web pages previously downloaded and rendered for display during the course of a Web surfing session.
The disk drive rotates at a rate substantially in synchronization with a display refresh time interval of a display device, preferably a raster refresh cycle time of a video monitor. Start studying Lesson 2 The Internet and the World Wide Web. Learn vocabulary, Disk cache.
Temporary folders on the hard drive in which Web sites you visit are. The World Wide Web, or simply web, is a way of accessing information over the medium of the internet. It is an information-sharing model that is built on top of the internet. The web uses the HTTP protocol, only one of the languages spoken over the internet, to transmit data.

Web is the term given to describe a second generation of the World Wide Web that is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online.
Web basically refers to the transition from static HTML Web pages to a more dynamic Web that is more organized and is based on serving Web applications to users.
