The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the main international standards organization
for the Web. This consortium develops and upgrades the standards for the web. If you
don’t like something, it’s their fault.
Seriously, though, Tim Berners-Lee published what is considered to be the first website
in August 1991. Berners-Lee was the first to combine Internet communication (which
had been carrying email and the Usenet for decades) with hypertext (which had also been
around for decades, but limited to browsing information stored on a single computer,
such as interactive CD-ROM design).
W3C is the council for standard web creation and it announces the updates about any field in web designing.
