Vishva Kannada is world’s first online magazine as well as web-site in Kannada. The very first trial issue was put up in mid-Dec 1996. From Jan 1997 it was quite regular as monthly. For the Feb 1998 issue, Vishva Kannada used dynamic fonts, thus becoming the first Indian language web-site to use that technology. Vishva Kannada was sub-domain under indianlanguages till 1999 Dec. From Jan 2000 it got its own domain name, ie, www.vishvakannada.com. In 2003 CMS was implemented and switched over to Unicode. Most content from old issue in non-Unicode is still available in the web-site. Now Vishva Kannada is not being updated as a monthly magazine. Taking the advantage of CMS, content is added as and when content is available irrespective of any regular date.
