Those who rule the internet

The internet they say, belongs to no one. True as they say. The true potential of the internet is something that grows over time. However, there are some key players in the game of the internet. Whenever, the term internet is mentioned, people think of the world wide web. And as it stands there are key players who run significant portions of the web. To begin with and not to mention the least, the very wordpress used to run this blog runs about 25% of the web. Below is a list of a few key players who run the web. One could even say they control the web because some of them are engaged in the technologies that push the web to the bleeding edge.This list is by no means in any order of priority and is non exhaustive.

  • Google
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Youtube
  • Yahoo
  • Pinterest
  • Forbes
  • torrents (general torrents)
  • WordPress
  • Craigslist
  • Paypal
  • Bestbuy
  • Mozilla
  • ebay

Many more are driving the web and we can say in summary that every web application or site contributes a part of the web and controls it in its own way. We just give tribute to those who make significant contributions to its growth and development, those who define and maintain the standards.
