• Web3 is seen as the next evolution of the World Wide Web, building upon the decentralized technologies of Web3.
• Web1 refers to the first generation of the World Wide Web, primarily focused on providing static, read-only content to users.
• Web4 is seen as potentially more decentralized than Web3 and could bring many new benefits to users.
Web3 is seen as the next evolution of the World Wide Web, building upon the decentralized technologies of web3. While it offers many advantages over web1 and web2, there are still areas where web4 could be more decentralized than its predecessors. In this article we’ll discuss what can we see in web4 that we’re missing in web3.
What is WWW?
WWW stands for World Wide Web, a system of interconnected documents and other resources linked by hyperlinks and URLs created by Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 while working at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research). It allows users to access information over the internet through various platforms such as browsers, mobile apps and other software based on HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). The WWW continues to evolve with new technologies being developed to improve user experience, security and accessibility.
What is Web1?
Web 1 refers to the first generation of WWW which began around 1990s till early 2000s; websites were typically simple with limited graphics and few interactive features meant for sharing information such as personal profiles, news articles and research papers. Navigation was often limited with no search engines helping users find necessary info; also there was lack of interactivity as users were mainly passive consumers unable to leave comments or submit feedbacks or edit contents etc..
What Can We See in Web 4?
Web 4 promises a much more improved version which could be highly decentralized than its predecessors due to its advanced technologies like blockchain technology enabling secure data storage & transfer across networks with ease & efficiency; also decentralization may lead to greater privacy & ownership control over user data since all transactions will occur directly between peers without any third party intervention; moreover smart contracts can be used for automated digital agreements that are legally binding instead of manual paperwork & authorization processes thus saving time & money; lastly distributed ledger technology provides an immutable record keeping system ensuring transparency & immutability making it difficult for malicious actors from altering records thus promoting trust among parties involved in transactions.
In conclusion, although much progress has been made in terms of decentralizing our existing ecosystems via web 3 technologies, there are still aspects within them that can benefit greatly from further decentralization offered by emerging solutions such as those found within web 4 protocols. Therefore it’s important for us all stay up-to-date with latest developments happening within this space so that we can take full advantage all possibilities they offer us moving forward.
