Transcript of History of Web Design

Who invented the world wide web? First websites Websites today
Tim Bernis Lee HISTORY OF WEB DESIGN In thebeginning... The internet did not start off as the amazing way of sharing information that it is today. The internet was first an easy way of transferring data used by scientists and military personnel. It was created in the1960's, but it wasn't available for anyone with a computer modem and a telephone line to use until the late 1980's. This is what an average comeputer in the1980's looked like. Tim Bernes-Lee was the man who invented the world wide web. He is now head of the W3C, the world wide web consortium. He is a British engineer and computer scientist. The world wide web consortium was established in 1994.This is a group in charge of maintaining the future of the world wide web. Goals and standards were set to do this. Html was the language chosen to code all websites.
HTML version 1 was limited but could be built upon. Today, we have versions 2, 3 and 4 and other variations.
Generations of websites
Web design has been divided into "generations." First-generation websites were boring because they were mostly text with minimal graphics, and no other media such as music of video. Their basic design made it much easier for slower modems to transfer the information in a short amount of time.

This is a first generation website.
The standards set by the W3C have made it nearly impossible for large companies to create specific web browsers and potentially develop a monopoly on web design code. If one company had been allowed to dominate web design and browser technologies, it could have had a very detrimental effect on the Internet as we know it today.
Second-generation websites were a little more complicated, with more abilities available via HTML. Third-generation websites brought the inclusion of colored backgrounds and animated images.

Today's websites are considered the fourth generation. Websites are vibrant and full of color. XML, JavaScript and Flash are just a few of the advanced techniques used to make each website different and exciting. We now have the ability to use code to bring websites to life. Now technology has given people the ability to add small scripted programs to their websites. Web designers can add interactive elements, produce videos or create games to include in websites they design.

Websites Today These websites have lots of colours, graphics and video. Sources http://www.articlesbase.com/ecommerce-articles/the-history-of-web-design-in-a-nutshell-494582.html http://www.slideshare.net/rsm/web-design-history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_design
