The First Online Literary Magazines

In 1991, with the invention of browsers and the implementation of domains, the Internet became what is now known as the WWW - the World Wide Web. Soon, the first online literary magazine appeared in the web. Some of them still exist, some went offline.

Fast forward 17 years.
