Abstract

Hypertext systems went through several stages of development and dedicated research efforts. Currently, the World Wide Web is the backbone which links massive amount of hypertext and hypermedia documents published by communities and individuals working from all parts of the universe. However, the history of hypertext systems reveals that there were a competition between the Web and two open hypermedia systems which are Hyper-G and Microcosm. The aim of this paper is to investigate the success factors of the Web and present the ways of including open hypermedia features in the Web.
