How Popular Websites Looked When They First Appeared

Here from The Wayback Machine™ archives are screen captures of how some of the most popular websites looked back when they first came onto the scene.

This group features websites of general interest, like Google, Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo, YouTube, New York Times, UK Telegraph, and Drudge Report.

With the exception of Google and to a lesser degree the Drudge Report, content has greatly increased over time. This is due mainly because as recently as 2000, the standard computer display screen resolution was still somewhere around 800 x 600 pixels (today it is 1024 x 768), and most people were still using telephone dial-up Internet connections. If your computer even has a telephone modem, try using it to view a website like Yahoo! and be amazed at how painstakingly long you have to wait just for the homepage to render.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
