Web 1

Web 1 refers to the first generation of the World Wide Web, which was characterised by static HTML pages accessed through a web browser. Central to Web 1 was the concept of information sharing, and many of the websites of the time were designed to provide a platform for people to share content and communicate with each other. One of the key features of Web 1 was that it was largely read-only, meaning that users could only consume content that had been created and published by others, and they could not easily create or publish their own content.
