There are some funny faqs and some other amusing links on the page. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’ve got an hour or so to kill.
9. acme.com is an old website years, years ahead of its time
acme.com was registered in 1994, is one of the oldest websites, and is still working. It seems the website owner is quite happy to keep the antique look of the site and to be honest, it’s quite refreshing to modern “fancy” sites.
As the site details, they are “Purveyors of fine freeware since 1972. On the net since 1991.”
10. Yes, the 90s website for “Space Jam” is still live
Remember that film? Oh man, that’s going back. Did you know the website is still alive? Amazing right, when was that, 1996? Granted it’s been archived, but it’s nice Warner Bros hasn’t deleted it outright.
Boasting a star-filled background, amazing mid-’90’s graphics but sadly no Michael Jordan, how could you not set it as your homepage??
11. toastytech.com is the epitome of 90s website design
Here’s another funny one. Back in the misty past of the internet, Microsoft once asked that users install IE 1. It appears one particular customer was less than pleased.
Taking the time and dedication to create an entire web page detailing just how evil Internet Explorer is, frankly, impressive. And all this in 1998.
As the site explains:
“This site is dedicated to preserving and expressing the humor and controversy around the intrusive introduction of Microsoft Internet Explorer and how Microsoft abused its dominant position in the Operating System Marketplace.”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, are some of the oldest websites still alive and kicking out there.
Amazing right? If you want to see some more, why not try “google whacking” some or visit 404pagefound.com. They have an archive of old websites since 1993.
