Well a lot would say that it was the american millitary who first started networking computers so that if one computer got blown to pieces then all the others would still work and also so that infomation could be sent across quicker. A lot of companies used inTRAnet type things that weren't really compatable with each other.
I'm not sure who decieded to get all thoose intranets joined together into an internet but in case your interested the guy who invented html was tim burness lee,.

Basic summary: the American Research Projects Agency (ARPA) funded a company called Bolt Beranek Newman (now BBN Technologies) to link four universities together to form the ARPANET. This grew for some time and other similar networks were created, including NSFNET and JANET (two academic networks in the US and UK respectively). Cross-communication between networks became possible, and the combined "international network" became known as the Internet. Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web (i.e. HTML and HTTP) as a means of sharing physics research in the early 1990s, and this triggered much more interest in the network.
Another note: the original purpose of the ARPAnet was to share computer time at universities. It was not military, though that came later with MILnet.

Originally posted by MstrBob I've always wanted to know, why is the code name for Internet Explorer "Mozilla" Did M$ steal the browser from Mozilla and then break it or something?
No... internet explorer has been around for a while, mozilla is fairly recent, mozilla is the same platform as ghecko, and netscape 5 and on is all on the ghecko platform I believe, that is why mozilla and ns are so similar. Aol is also on ghecko. I do not have all of the facts straight so someone can fill in my blanks
