All about the World Wide Web

The terms "Internet" and "World Wide Web" are often used interchangeably, but they do not mean the same thing. The Internet is a global system of computer networks interconnected through telecommunications and optical networking, while the World Wide Web is a global collection of documents and other resources, linked by hyperlinks and URIs.

The World Wide Web is a subset of these interactions and supports websites and URIs, while the Internet is the underlying technology that enables computers, phones, game consoles, smart home equipment, servers, and other network-capable devices to talk to each other, no matter where they are in the world.

Some of the most popular uses of internet connectivity today, such as sending emails, accessing file transfer protocols, using mobile apps, and instant messaging, are not necessarily web functions.
