WorldWideWeb (The First ever Web Browser)

WorldWideWeb, later renamed to Nexus to avoid confusion between the software and the World Wide Web, was the first ever web browser and editor. Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web together with Robert Cailliau, built the first working prototype in late 1990 and early 1991. That first prototype consisted of a web browser for the NeXTStep operating system. This first web browser, which was named “WorldWideWeb,” had a graphical user interface and would be recognizable to most people today as a web browser. However, WorldWideWeb did not support graphics embedded in pages when it was first released.
