Blog Assignment: Internet History Blog – Write a blog that incorporates a bit of Internet/Web history. This could take many possible forms so feel free to be creative! Don’t think of it like an assignment to list the historical details. You could write a sweeping commentary on the history of it all, you could write a biography of an important personality, or break down for us the history of Google. Incorporate multimedia – think web literacy!
I present to you the complete, increasingly complex, history of the web browser… in a photo, yes one photo!
But seriously, the web browser has been around for a long time. It’s also come a long way since the days when dial-up modems reigned supreme! Today I am thankful that there is no one browser that dominates market share. 90’s was dominated by Netscape (unless you were using AOL or MSN), the turn of the millennium brought forth a decade dominated by Microsofts Internet Explorer (perhaps all those anti-trust lawsuits explain why?). Today it’s a race between Safari, Firefox, IE and Google’s Chrome. You know what they always say, variety is the spice of life!
