Microsoft has been on the Web for 20 years, and to celebrate, has given us a throwback in the form of its first ever live webpage. As you’d expect, it looks awful. The site was coded in HTML back when it was still a fledgling language, but it did the trick.
As Microsoft’s Suzanne Choney reminds us, the number of websites back in 1994 stood at just a few thousand, but nowadays there are literally millions. Does the sight of such a webpage invoke nostalgia or contempt? Did you like the web when it was simpler or overwhelmingly visual?
