Proposal for the World Wide Web published

Proposal for the World Wide Web published Sir Tim Berners-Lee

12 November, 1990

A formal proposal for the World Wide Web was published by Sir Tim Berners-Lee on 12th November 1990. Sir Tim was a consulting scientist at CERN, a high-energy physics facility situated on the borders of France and Switzerland.

The world’s first web browser and the first web server were developed subsequently by Berners-Lee by the end of 1990 and released the following year. The web soon gained popularity with the advent of web browsers such as Mosaic and Netscape.
