THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the world's first search engine?
Long before web sites started
sprouting in 1993, even before the World Wide Web, there was a need to sort data
that was strewn about many computers and shared via FTP.
Alan Emtage, a student at McGill University in
Montreal, addressed this need in 1990
and launched 'Archie', the world's first search engine.
Archie was originally intended to be named 'archives'
but thanks to limits of characters set by UNIX, Archie was born.
Archie was a success and Veronica
followed in 1993 and Jughead soon after.
The first search engine designed for the internet came
out in 1993 under the name 'World Wide Web Wanderer' which was later shortened
WebCrawler, released in 1994, was the first text-based search engine that
allowed searching pages for words which is the standard used today.
Want to take a guess how we found all this out?
