Webwereld was a Dutch online newspaper about IT by the International Data Group. It was the oldest Dutch technology website until it was discontinued in 2020.[1]


Webwereld was founded in 1995 by Oscar Kneppers, who got the idea after visiting Silicon Valley in the summer of that year.[1] Another Dutch tech website Tweakers.net was founded in 1998 after Femme Taken concluded that the moderation on Webwereld was too strict.[2]

In August 2011, Webwereld published about court documents in the Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. lawsuit.[3] In October 2011, Webwereld started Lektober (portmanteau of leak and October in Dutch) where they publicized about software vulnerabilities in well known Dutch websites.[4] In 2011, Trans Link Systems considered suing Webwereld because they sold RFID writers that could be used for free traveling in Dutch public transport.[5]
