The internet can support a lot of different technologies and is not just
restricted to the WWW. 

Regarding the latter, lets not forget the use of JavaScript and other
scripting languages (e.g., VBscript) that allow for programming of HTML
and control of the browser; and, CGI and languages like Perl that allow
for dynamic interaction with a server-side applications. 

I think there's actually a lot of new things, and more coming.
