On the 30th birth anniversary of the World Wide Web, Google Doodle reminds of how things were like in its early years.

British Physicist Tim Berners-Lee on March 12, 1989, was working for Europe’s physics lab ‘CERN’, when he proposed a decentralized system of information management, which signaled the birth of World Wide Web. It is now used by billions of users.

Tim’s proposal had a system of hypertext links, the chance of clicking keywords on one page and being directly led to the page dedicated to them, thus connect to other pages.

Google Doodle illustrates this technology milestone with an animation displaying block graphics, which earlier were common. A globe in the center slowly renders on a desktop monitor to take us back to the slower download speed time.

Google in a blog post says, “Not to be confused with the internet, which had been evolving since the 1960s, the World Wide Web is an online application built upon innovations like HTML language, URL “addresses”, and hypertext transfer protocol, or HTTP.”

On Monday, Berners-Lee in a published letter has hailed the opportunities created by the web, given marginalized groups a voice and making daily life much easier. But he has also warned, “it has also created an opportunity for scammers, given a voice to those who spread hatred, and made all kinds of crimes easier to commit.”
