The World Wide Web (WWW, Web, or W3) is known as the largest accessible repository of human knowledge. It contains around 3 billion documents, which may be accessed by more than 500 million worldwide users. In only 13 years since its appearance in 1991, the Web suffered such a huge growth that it is safe to say there is no phenomenon in history that can compare to it. It reached such importance that it became an indispensable partner in the lives of people (Daconta, Obrst & Smith, 2003).
