Let’s take trip in the

Let’s take trip in the wayback machine today, kids. First up is the Netscape Time Capsule, a look back at the origin of the Netscape browser, featuring old graphics and such from the Web site. Also of interest is A Brief History of Microsoft on the Web, detailing the evolution of the microsoft.com site from its (very) humble beginnings, including bloopers such as part of the MSN site going prematurely live because someone sat on the mouse.

And you can get early versions of both Netscape and MSIE, as well as some earlier browsers, on my Old School Browsers page and the evolt.org Browser Archive.

If I have time later today, I’ll upload a sample of my early Web work. Be prepared to laugh.
