History Of Web Design

History Of Web Design



History is​ the​ replica of​ the​ present. Thus, we have to​ press our flashback imaginary buttons in​ order to​ have a​ sojourn in​ the​ times of​ yore.

We have to​ know the​ beginning in​ order to​ relate it​ to​ the​ present and​ the​ future. in​ the​ case of​ web design, history is​ conclusive and​ clear and​ it​ is​ interesting to​ dwell a​ tad in​ a​ world of​ imagination, art and​ craftsmanship. Together we go back…

In the​ late 1960’s, internet was used to​ transfer data between computers through the​ telephone network system. the​ transfer was made possible by transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP). it​ was developed by Advanced Research and​ Projects Agency. it​ was primarily developed for​ US military needs however, it​ was later used by some universities.

In 1969, aside from the​ creation of​ ARPANET, Generalized Markup Language (GML) was also created. This was made possible by the​ brilliant minds of​ Charles Goldfarb, Edward Mosher, and​ Raymond Lorie. GML was then used to​ facilitate text management in​ large information systems.

It was in​ 1980 when American National Standards Institute (ANSI) committee built on GML and​ published a​ working draft of​ Standard GML, or​ SGML. This was later on adopted as​ the​ standard system by government agencies, research companies and​ schools. Few years after, a​ scientist working at​ CERN, the​ Nuclear Particle Physics Laboratory in​ Switzerland, by the​ name of​ Tim Berners-Lee, invented the​ HyperText Markup Language (HTML) to​ define the​ structure of​ Web pages. it​ is​ a​ standard hypertext language protocol and​ browser program that interrupts the​ html version and​ converts it​ into text. HTML was used in​ a​ lot of​ contents and​ multi-media images or​ anything that uses tables, graphics, audio, video, and​ mathematics symbols.

Berners-Lee is​ also responsible for​ the​ early developments in​ the​ web’s ability to​ link academic papers like books researches and​ studies electronically. Another contribution was the​ inception of​ the​ concept of​ internet to​ answer the​ intellectual and​ emotional queries of​ people around the​ world.

It was also in​ 1980’s when the​ web experienced a​ rapid evolution. the​ changes are now used by business, education, government and​ other companies and​ entities. This is​ the​ ear when the​ World Wide Web was developed by a​ scientist who has explored communication methods through computer network.

Early on, browser programs were only capable of​ viewing texts, but nowadays, they have already developed into a​ wide range of​ computer platforms. Aside from that, there is​ also lots of​ authoring software available these days. in​ fact, it​ has turned very user-friendly that children can very well understand and​ use it!
