Correct Answer - Option 3 : World Wide Web Consortium

​The correct answer is World Wide Web Consortium.

  • In the field of computers and the Internet, W3C stands for World Wide Web Consortium.
  • The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards.
  • Founded in 1994 and currently led by Web inventor and Director Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C's mission is to lead the Web to its full potential.
  • The W3C is an industry consortium that seeks to promote standards for the evolution of the Web and interoperability between WWW products by producing specifications and reference software. Although W3C is funded by industrial members, it is vendor-neutral, and its products are freely available to all.
  • The organization is guided by its open standards principles. It calls them OpenStand, which it refers to as “The Modern Paradigm for Standards".

  • The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was founded in 1994 by Tim Berners-Lee after he left the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in October 1994.
  • It was founded at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Laboratory for Computer Science (MIT/LCS) with support from the European Commission, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which had pioneered the ARPANET, one of the predecessors to the Internet.
  • W3C also engages in education and outreach, develops software, and serves as an open forum for discussion about the Web.
