    websites of today and the websites of the past

    Topic :Comparison between the websites of today and the websites of the past

    * Do you surf the internet often? What were websites like in the past? Have they changed since you first started surfing the internet? How have they changed? Please compare the websites of today to the websites of the past.

    I can compare three types of websites.
    First one was just a terminal through which we could access websites.
    Back then, the terminal was not a personal computer but a small monitor with a keyboard.
    Korea Telecom provided it to schools for their staff to use it.
    It worked with a modem connected to telephone lines.
    The homepage of the system was text-based, composed of ASCII codes.
    On the homepage, using numbers, we could access other websites.

    In about ten years from the first generation period, the second type of internet came into being.
    WWW(World Wide Web) sites were launched. So we could finally access the internet with a personal computer and only mouse clicks.
    But it still used text-based hyperlinks to access other websites, so it was the primitive version of the internet.

    After this type of internet using flash and HTML5, finally the third type of internet used now was created.
    Unlike the second generation using text-based hyperlinks, the third generation of internet uses GUI(Graphic User Interface) with graphic icons to access other websites easily with only mouse clicks.
    As icons are graphical, we can understand their meanings well and access their links very easily with only a mouse click.
    The current user interface is very advanced with efficient internet access.
    It's much more convenient compared to the previous internet type with text-based hyperlinks where we had to type in numbers or letters.
    ==================================

    If I have made any mistakes, please correct them.

    Re: websites of today and the websites of the past

    Is that writing or speaking practice? The question is asking you to compare websites today with websites of the past. It is not asking you to talk about the history of personal computers or the internet.

    I still maintain it's off topic. However, I can proofread what you wrote above if you don't want to change your text.
