Abstract

This article presents the application of general systems theory to web-based applications, with an emphasis on the evolutionary approach. The stages of web applications are discussed, according to their complexity, usage and historical appearance. Then the evolutionary approach as a framework is applied on web applications, in the meaning of their evolvement through time. This is expected to clarify a process of transformation from simple static websites to complex social web applications. The outline of these evolutional stages is followed by a suggestion of the current stage of web applications and future possibilities.
