Web Standards Project (WaSP)

Definition - What does Web Standards Project (WaSP) mean?

The Web Standards Project (WaSP) was an association of Web developers collaborating to implement and define certain Web standards for browsers. Created in 1998, WaSP promoted the use of a standard language for programming for the Web and persuaded the Web browser creators to support the standard languages.

The Web Standards Project was defunct in 2013 because the purpose of uniformity and standardization was served.

Techopedia explains Web Standards Project (WaSP)

Brought forth at the time of dot-com boom, the Web Standards Project was founded to encourage Web browser companies, peers and authoring tool makers to use certain Web standards to deliver greater benefit to a higher number of users.

The primary goal of the group was achieved by 2001 when Microsoft, Netscape, Opera and other browser makers were successfully persuaded to support HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0, CSS1 and ECMA Script. The benefits of these standards can currently be seen in the the fact that all data on the Internet is compatible with all browsers, rather than only specific ones.
