How The Internet Works: Infographic

But what exactly happens when you connect to the internet? This handy animated infographic can help you understand what is going on behind the scenes when you click a link online or perform a Google search.

By creating a set of rules that computers could use to talk to each other, engineers named Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf created the internet. The Web was actually invented by a man named Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 to connect all computers like a web by using the handy links that we click on every day.

So, the next time you are using the Web on your phone or tablet, you know all of the steps that happen in the instant that you click on a link. As information travels at light speed through the air or through wires to bring you your favorite shows or videos, your computer is still using rules and technology created over 30 years ago.
