Internet: The Beginning

The first web browser was released in 1993. It was originally known as Mosaic before being renamed Netscape. As people began emailing each other, browsing the internet, and creating their own pages, the internet grew in popularity.

By the late 1990s, a diverse range of goods and services were available for purchase. Companies such as Google, Amazon, and Yahoo arose.
