Web Archaeology – Origin of a Browser

Internet Search can be Interesting and result in Unexpected findings.

AOL has announced beta of a new Netscape Browser version for beta testers. I actually tried to find news/download of this and searched “netscape beta”. Interestingly I came across this page instead.

It is of “Origin of a Browser”, a website by an individual web developer who has painstakingly worked on web archaeology. The site shows Screenshots of various Netscape Browsers (even before it was called Netscape), links to download old versions and other tit-bits on Netscape history.

A good nostalgic site to check out. Post your early experiences with web on the comments section below.
