What’s the deal with “WWW”?

Back then you would need to specify that you were looking for information via the Web, and the www was required. Once the first graphical Web browser (NCSA Mosaic) appeared in 1993, the Web boomed and became the most common platform for the Internet.


Technically, most web addresses still use www, so for example to get to the Geek Squad home page you can use www.geeksquad.com. Most browsers like Internet Explorer, Safari, and Firefox will automatically add the “www” if you only type in the geeksquad.com name, so it is not necessary to type.
