I. Getting Started > 2. How the Web Works

Chapter 2. How the Web Works

I got started in web design in early 1993—pretty close to the start of the Web itself. In web time, that makes me an old-timer, but it’s not so long ago that I can’t remember the first time I looked at a web page. It was difficult to tell where the information was coming from and how it all worked.

This chapter sorts out the pieces and introduces some basic terminology. We’ll start with the big picture and work down to specifics.

No, it’s not a battle to the death, just an opportunity to point out the distinction between these two words that are increasingly being used interchangeably.
