Travelling Through Time With Internet Time Machine

We are not kidding – time travel is really possible! With today’s technology it is only possible in the internet and in TV series such as Lost but we think it will soon be possible in real life.

How?  WaybackMachine collects snapshots of the web since 1996, so you can play around in the old times of the internet. The loading speed of those websites also some how reminds me of 1996 dial up connection. Nevertheless, here are some of our discoveries: in Dec 02, 1998


Clean and tidy from the beginning, I only hate those ugly looking green rectangles. The interesting thing is, that Google hasn’t changed a lot – even kept the original buttons. in Oct 17, 1996


Messy and overcrowded from the beginning.. in Jan 17, 1997


They had the best Logo designer in those times. in Dec 07, 1998


Nice header. in Nov 10, 1996


Very friendly website – they had 2 versions: Adult and Kids, not like websites in these days :(

Find 10 differences


Adult version:


Kids version:

I can see more “M” letters in the second version, and one of the pans moved behind the guys back.
P.S. today’s website looks worse than in 1996. in Dec 25, 1996


Okay some how in Dec 20, 1996 



A little change from the one that I can remember in Oct 12, 1999 in Dec 09, 2004



It’s incredible how much the internet has grown up and especially in design – it became much more beautiful.
Now it’s your turn to travel through time! Go to WaybackMachine and have fun there -  just don’t forget to share your discoveries in the comment section.

P.S. The site WaybackMachine block where I live. Maybe it work at other places.
