The internet which was born at Cern in Switzerland in August 1991 has completed silver jubilee this year. The first website launched was info.cern.ch. The internet brought a sea change in the lives of the people. Browsing internet became a daily routine for many in the world. It made simple to buy tickets, booking taxis, payments, money and data transfer in a short time anywhere in the world, etc. Now one cannot imagine the life without internet and in fact it became an addiction to several people around the world in one way or the other. It brought the world closer with many of its applications. It saved a lot of time in sending the communications around the world. Chatting and instant messaging are added features with internet. With rapid progress in software and hardware areas, hope new generation may be able to see many more features and applications with internet.
