WorldWideWeb was introduced on February 26, 1991, by Tim Berners-Lee, and ran on the NeXTSTEP platform. It was the world's first web browser and WYSIWYG HTML editor. It was later renamed Nexus to avoid confusion with the World Wide Web.
⇒ WorldWideWeb (WWW) was the first program which used not only the common File Transfer Protocol but also the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, invented by Berners-Lee in 1989. At the time it was written, WorldWideWeb was the only way to view the Web in 1991. See WorldWideWeb on Wikipedia.
⇒ Note: The Internet predates the World Wide Web, having as its earliest manifestation, the establishment of the four–node ARPANET in December 1969.
