Trailblazers, creatives and innovators have taken the Internet to where it is today and made it an essential part of our everyday lives. We have selected a number of interesting “firsts” from the history of the Internet (and the Web) for your reading pleasure.

These 15 firsts have been divided into three sections:

* Web firsts – Notable firsts on the Web.
* Web service firsts – Firsts for a few notable web services.
