WWW - The Libwww Line Mode Browser was written before
February 11 1991by Nicola Pellow, an intern working at CERN. The first stable version, 1.1 was released in January 1992. Tim Berners-Leehad already written the first browser, WorldWideWeb, but that program only worked on NeXTcomputers, which were in limited use. So, Berners-Lee and his team recruited Pellow to write a browser so basic that it could run on any computer in existence at that time. The name "line-mode browser" is derived from that fact that, in order to ensure compatibility with the earliest computer terminals, such as Teletypemachines, the program only displayed text one line at a time.
