We have 25 years experience leading the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth of the Web.
Our values revolve around building the web for all
The social value of the Web is that it enables human communication, commerce, and opportunities to share knowledge. One of W3C's primary goals is to make these benefits available to all people, whatever their hardware, software, network infrastructure, native language, culture, geographical location, or physical or mental ability.
