HTML 1.0

The first major version of HTML debuted in 1991 with only 22 elements – some elements (e.g. NEXTID, ISINDEX, etc.) were never used again, whereas others (e.g. TITLE, A, etc.) remain in use. The lack of many elements was made up for in the ability to link documents. The World Wide Web also made its debut to the public as a consumer service in 1991, thanks to Tim Berners-Lee.[1][2]

Berners-Lee wrote the first web browser, WorldWideWeb (later renamed to Nexus). It was released for the NeXTSTEP platform.[Citation needed]

HTML 2.0

The Web started to gain more popularity, with 1995 seeing the release of HTML 2.0 as a result.
