Yahoo! is ten years old

Yahoo! turned ten years old this week which makes me feel like I’m about ready for the retirement home. As part of their celebration, they put up a copy of their home page from 1995. I poked around a little and found a copy from December 1994 from when the site was still hosted at Stanford on a server called akebono. To do it up right, download an early version of Mosaic or Netscape, change your screen resolution to 640x480 with 256 colors, and surf the page that way. Just don’t blame me if you get all weepy after seeing the gray background and pulsing N in the corner of the browser.

Note: I have no idea if any of these browsers will even work on OS X or Windows XP…you might need to dust off that 486 running Win95 or a 7100 running System 8.
