Your Favorite Web Sites from Over 20 Years Ago

apple.com website 1998

It is amazing to see how much web design has changed over the past 20+ years.  Looking at some of the old sites will make you want to puke.

1) MSN.com – Not really known for brand identity? Well, at least in this case.  This screen shot is actually from 1996.

2) Apple.com – Aint actually too bad looking.  This pre-dates the whole glassy looking style that Apples has been known for. Check out the HOT Mac Pro!

3) MTV.com – There is something modern about this crappy old design…could it be the Best Experienced with IE icon?

4) eBay.com – This is an old shot from 1996, which is actually missing the old logo. Still, pretty cool to see how primitive this site once was.

5) Microsoft.com – Goes to show you that their design skills haven’t changed much…they’ve just added blurry shadows and transparency.

6) Target.com – One of my favorite stores, known for cutting edge commercials had a cutting-cheese web site.

7) Yahoo.com – I love it that Google looks as simple as the original 1996 Yahoo.
