What is World Wide Web?

As the name suggests, World Wide Web or the Web is the space on the internet, where different types of information, data or document is identified or accessed by Uniform Resource Locator ( URL’s ). For Example, Suppose you move over to Google to search about your favorite music artist, say Eminem and the Eminem’s Wikipedia page comes up.
Eminem's Wikipedia page
So in this case, this address: is the location of the information that you’re accessing about Eminem. We call this web address a URL. And the collection of all these information, files, videos or data makes up the Web. So, everything over the internet, is all the part of the Web.

He also wrote the Web Browser in 1990 while he was an employee in CERN.When it was in its early days, the Web used mainly two languages for its development, HTML and CSS.
