With a simple stroke of the keyboard, the Internet is getting downsized to internet.

On June 1, 2016, the AP Stylebook will change it’s style designation from Internet to internet. Another related change is Web to web. The announcement stated “We will lowercase internet and web June 1, when we release the 2016 AP Stylebook.”

This may well be a mind-shift for many, but for people who type, it’s one more way to be faster on the keyboard. Ever notice how IT folks frequently ignore uppercase?
