Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989.
In March 1989 Sir Tim Berners-Lee wrote “Information Management: A Proposal” which is considered the beginning of the World Wide Web. The name he thought of at the time of starting work was “Mesh”. He later decided on “World Wide Web” when writing the code in 1990.
