1995 was designated as:

  • United Nations Year for Tolerance
  • World Year of Peoples' Commemoration of the Victims of the Second World War

This was the first year that the Internet was entirely privatized, with the United States government no longer providing public funding, marking the beginning of the Information Age.[1][2] America Online and Prodigy offered access to the World Wide Web system for the first time this year, releasing browsers that made it easily accessible to the general public.[3]
