    Tim Berners-Lee
    The original World Wide Web (WWW) was a decentralized system of interlinked hypertext documents accessible via the internet. Although it was prototyped in December of 1990, it was in 1991 that the World Wide Web was opened to the public. This invention revolutionized the way we communicate and was the blueprint for today's internet.

    Javascript was a programming language invented for Netscape that enabled the creation of the first interactive and dynamic web pages. It allowed developers to add functionalities, perform client-side scripting, and enhance user experience on websites that were originally static. It has since become one of the most widely used programming languages for web development.

    Adobe Flash Player, initially developed at FutureWave Software (later acquired by Macromedia and then Adobe), was first released in 1996. Flash Player had a significant impact on web design, enabling engaging and interactive websites, online games, and multimedia presentations. However, due to HTML5 and a lack of mobile device support, Flash Player eventually became less prevalent and was officially discontinued by Adobe in 2020.
  • Wi-Fi

    WiFi was first released for consumers in 1997. Wi-Fi technology, also known as Wireless Fidelity, was developed by a group of organizations and contributors to provide wireless connectivity for devices. Wi-Fi allowed users to connect to the internet and local networks without the need for physical ethernet cables. It revolutionized the way we access the internet, enhancing our mobility and enabling seamless wireless communication.
