To lead the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth for the Web.
The above is the mission of the World Wide Web Consortium, sometime we call ‘W3C’. In the last decade, the W3c has developed 110 web guidelines and standard, which is known as W3C Recommendations. W3C Recommendation is a specification that, after extensive consensus-building, has received the endorsement of W3C Members and the Director, to encourage the wide acceptance of the standards.
W3C refers to this goal as “Web interoperability.” By publishing and promoting open (non-proprietary) standards for Web languages and protocols, W3C seeks to avoid market fragmentation and thus Web fragmentation. W3C is located all over the world. W3C Members work together to design Web technologies that build upon its universality, giving the world the power to enhance communication and commerce for anyone, anywhere, anytime and using any device.” , said Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web.
