First Ever Website?

First grad class of my life starts in the afternoon, and right now while sitting at the system, suddenly I was wondering as to which was the first website ever on the internet? Well, in this Google-age, it ain't that difficult to find the answer of any question or for that matter a question to any answer. So I pinged in the query and there were quite a few folks who had wondered about the same before. But there were some hilarious answers such as -
- Microsoft, since they invented the 'first' browser.. IE.. :D I was almost rolling on the floor laughing!
- or, since they have been around for more than 10 yrs.

Well, sanity returned when the name of Tim Burners Lee was mentioned and then further pinging and querying I finally had the answer -

It is not now (alas) served but a later (1992) copy of the original pages exists at

Well, I was also served with the history of browsers. For the inquisitive, here it is.
