What does WWW mean?

WWW are initials that stand for World Wide Web. A "web" is a network of fibres or cables connecting different points. (Spiders make webs to catch flies.) The Web is one of the services available on the Internet. It lets you access millions of pages through a system of hyperlinks. Because it is "world-wide", it was originally called the World Wide Web or WWW.
