Actually Internet was started in 1973 as a U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency project.

It became easy to use due to the invention of the World Wide Web by Tim Berners-Lee working at CERN, which put the web technology and program code was in the public domain so that anyone could use and improve it.

Internet was invented as a new way of communication between computers in a network. In this system a message from a computer is divided into packets and each packet finds its own way from the source to the destination computer. There are many paths between two computers and each packet carries information about the source and destination computers. So even if the direct connection between two computers are destroyed in a nuclear attack , the packet can still navigate to its destination through other pathways. World Wide Web is a part of internet which allows us to view information on html or related documents(like this webpage) using a browser It was invented by Tim Bernes-Lee in CERN. Other parts of the internet are Gopher (menu based system) & Telnet (which helps in accessing remote computers) and many others. But the world is mostly familiar with WWW
