The World Wide Web Today
On April 30, 1993 CERN announced that the WWW technology would be available to all for free.
The Internet’s first website went online on August 6, 1991. Berners-Lee and his fellow CERN team members launched http://info.cern.ch with a landing page that only included 153 words.
Of the world’s 7.1 billion people, 2.4 billion people go online today. This is 37.7% of the world’s total population. About 6 of 7 people have internet access that is being used everyday.
