Browser History

DejaVu.org This is an oldie, but I think that not everyone's seen it — DejaVu.org's History of the Web. Not a usual Internet history as you'd think of it, but a browser history with a timeline and (what may be) browser emulators or the real thing; I just don't know.

The site's in frames, so click on the timeline link — and dig that it ends in 1999 with Mozilla (Netscape) and IE5. Still, we know about those, but the early days, discoveries and creativity are really something; people creating where nothing has gone before.

Of course, if you want to download these browsers, you go to Evolt.org's browser archive, which contains (among its entire collection) some of the earliest browsers.

And, hey, if this seems a might too freakishly geeky for you, I have this to say to you:

Netscape 2.0

    I love it! It is really cool to look back at the web and see where/what we have been. I also love http://www.archive.org/web/web.php to see how websites progressed over the years.

    Regards,
    Phil

    You're right, Phil. Archive.org's Wayback Machine can be amusing. Also useful, if someone has copied your images/text/website.

Have your say ...
