ANM News Desk: Google has dedicated an animated doodle for the 30th anniversary of World Wide Web.

On March 12, 1989 Tim Berners-Lee proposed an idea ‘Mesh’ now known as the World Wide Web or WWW. Mesh was initially supposed to allow his colleagues share information among multiple computers. Berners-Lee’s boss allowed him time to develop the humble flowchart into a working model, writing the HTML language, the HTTP application, and WorldWideWeb.app— the first Web browser and page editor. By 1991, the external Web servers were up and running.
