A must for anybody interested in business and eCommerce on the World Wide Web, we hope none of you missed this site on how the web evolved. The interactive timeline, itself a gilded dragon of a web design, takes you through the various tools and tech of the web. Hover over one aspect to see info boxes pop up explaining different key stepping stones in that aspect’s development. Through this, you can see that the WWW proper got off to a start in 1991 (though BBSs still dominated on the home front for a number of years), that Netscape (grandfather to Firefox) and Opera both predate Internet Explorer, and that AJAX actually came to the fore in 1999 – so why did the inductry not discover it until circa 2004?
