Internet ’96

The pace of development these days is astounding. Have a look at these archived corporate websites from just ten years ago, via Brewster Kahle’s Internet Archive. I actually remember the McDonalds one!

  1. I was looking at this today – thats hilarious. My 1996 website is still online, and I wish I could say it wasn’t full of animated gifs and comic sans ms font.

  2. I still have mine archived here – just bought another HDD, 320GB, never delete anything – but they’ll never see the light of day again!

  3. Remember when the website was just a page of plain text, they only sold CDs, and because everything was ordered from the US, it was common to pool orders with several other people to lower the cost of postage?

  4. i was not on line in 06 but i am amazed at how much has changed since then
