Webs are woven traps usually used by spiders to catch insects.

Web is also a common abbreviation for World Wide Web and website. It is also used to describe webpages that are used offline where net services are not available, or no computer network exists - such as Wikipedia on CD. In this case no real physical site exists other than the place where the computer is. Blog and Wiki capabilities will also not be available because these require a communication with other computers.
