World’s FIRST webpage ever created

The above link is the copy of the world’s FIRST webpage ever created. This copy of the original first webpage, created by Berners-Lee, is still published on the World Wide Web Consortium’s website as a historical document.The World Wide Web began as a CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) project called ENQUIRE, initiated by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 and Robert Cailliau in 1990. Berners-Lee and Cailliau were jointly honoured by the Association for Computing Machinery in 1995 for their contributions to the development of the World Wide Web. Based on the concept of hypertext, the project was aimed at facilitating sharing information among researchers. The first website went on-line in 1991. On 30 April 1993, CERN announced that the World Wide Web would be free to anyone.
