FIRST Web Page Viewed By 'FIRST' Browser Via 1965 Modem And Terminal

The first web page hosted at CERN is viewed by the 'first' ( in fact a later version of the first readily accessible web browser known as the line-mode browser). The first web browser was developed in 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee named the WorldWideWeb.

A Livermore Model B modem from the mid 1960s to early 1970s is used to connect to a remote UNIX (Solaris) system. The terminal that is connected to the Livermore is an ASR-33 Teletype of similar vintage.
