Before the World Wide Web, a home computer’s main function was word processing. But in the 1990s, hooking up to the Internet motivated an enormous number of consumers to purchase a computer. Since then, the World Wide Web has transformed the way we communicate, conduct business, and seek entertainment.
 
The World Wide Web is an Internet-based computer network that allows users on one machine to access information stored on another through a network. In 1989, at the European Center for Nuclear Research in Switzerland, Tim Berners-Lee began working on the software needed to make maneuvering the Internet easier. His program became available in 1992.
 
It wasn’t until 1993 that the “Web” became accepted by the average user as a method of communication. A browser program called “Mosaic,” developed by Mark Andreessen at the University of Illinois, was released that year. Mosaic featured point-and-click desktop graphics that allowed for easier access.
 
“Technomania” swept the world in the ‘90s. The trend even influenced financial markets. People in the computer industry, like Andreessen, who co-founded Netscape, and Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo!, became members of the new technical and financial elite.
