By the end of the 1980's, the term "Internet" was used to describe this vast global network. However, it was the development of the World Wide Web (usually known as "the Web" or "www") that set the wheels in motion for people other than scientists and military personnel to use the Internet. A key distinction to note is that the Web is a part of the Internet - not the Internet itself.
A group of Switzerland physicists developed the Web as a tool to easily and graphically use the Internet. The Web gathers world-wide Internet resources into a series of menu pages seen on a computer. The pages are linked together using a protocol called HyperText Transfer Protocol, or HTTP (hence, http://www.netacc.net , etc.). The programming language of the Web to create Websites is called HyperText Markup Language, or HTML. Using a Web-based graphical "browser" such as Netscape or Microsoft Explorer allows a user to navigate through the enormous amount of information available on the Internet.
In the early 1990's, commercial interest in the Internet started to stir, and by the end of 1995 the terms "Website", "E-mail", "Online", and "the 'Net" were becoming widely used. Today, the communication, sales, and document transfer abilities the Internet offers has impacted the entire world like nothing before it.
