Sir Tim used a NeXT Cube and the NeXT Developer tools to create the http standard and first web browser.

I've had the honor of providing, upgrading and repairing several of Tim's NeXT Cubes for his work as the President of the WWW consortium at MIT
and for the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics
and helping the folks at CERN with their quest for the very first web pages
on early NeXT Optical Disks!
