    A woman typed on a laptop, May 18, on a train in New Jersey. Major websites were down today in what appeared to be a brief but widespread outage.

NEW YORK >> Major websites went down today in what appeared to be a brief but widespread outage.

The websites of Airbnb, AT&T, Costco and Delta showed error messages around 6 a.m. Hawaii time. They seemed to be operating normally, however, by 6:45 a.m.

Akamai, a major behind-the-scenes internet network company, said on Twitter during the outage that it had created a fix for the service disruption and that “based on current observations, the service is resuming normal operations.”
