The Web, also known as the World Wide Web is a protocol layer built on top of the Internet. People use the Internet without the Web so rarely that the two have become almost synonymous. The web employs several protocols in order to display content to its users. You are on the Web any time you use a web browser (Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Brave Browser) and visit a web site. The web uses the base layer protocol of the Internet and builds on top of it using another protocol known as the hyper text transfer protocol, which you may know as HTTP. Internet Protocol transfers the raw data and then HTTP turns it into readable content that can be viewed in a web browser.
