One of my all time favorite web resources is getting a bit of a facelift to make searching the web’s history a little easier.
The Wayback Machine which is part of the Internet Archive has been documenting the web since 1996, so you can actually go back in time to see what the web looked like.
They periodically take snapshots of the web and currently have over 439 billion web pages saved.
Want to see what your company’s website looked like 10 years ago?
Just go to the Wayback Machine and type in the web address and you’ll get a timeline of all of the available snapshots.
Past snapshots just grabbed homepages, so that’s all you’ll be able to see, but the overhaul of their technology could allow more items to be archived in the future.
It’s a lot of fun to see what big name tech firms like Microsoft and Apple looked like in the early days, check it out at http://Archive.org/web
