The internet is a global, physical network of millions of computers that communicate by sending and receiving packets of data. The Internet supports many different communication protocols for different applications: e-mail, file transfer, domain resolution, remote terminals and hypertext. The World Wide Web is just one of those applications; it is based on sending and receiving hypertext. The Internet as we know it began to take shape in the early 1970s. The World Wide Web was invented by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989.
