“20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web” celebrates the 20th anniversary of the paper that led to the World Wide Web.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the proposal for the World Wide Web authored by Tim Berners-Lee, Google published a digital book called 20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web in collaboration with illustrator Christoph Niemann.
Written by the team behind Google Chrome, the online book aims to find new ways to explain the complexities of technology in simple, novice-friendly terms complemented by beautiful visual aids.
An excerpt from the introduction explains:
Life as citizens of the web can be liberating and empowering, but also deserves some self-education. Just as we’d want to know various basic facts as citizens of our physical neighborhoods — water safety, key services, local businesses — it’s increasingly important to understand a similar set of information about our online lives.
