The web has changed drastically over the years, specially in the last 5 years, in terms of design and standards.
Few months back, I had showcased how 12 Popular sites Looked at the time of their launch such as Facebook, Google, Twitter etc. Seeing how it’s still popular, I decided to continue the series with even more famous websites/blogs whose design were then are a gorgeous examples of ugly web standards of now. Let us start from Yahoo:
1. Yahoo (1996)
2. Apple (Launched in 1996)
(If you’re wondering why this image contains a date of 1998 instead of 1996, scroll to the bottom of this post)
3. Engadget (2004)
4. Gizmodo (2002)
5. Labnol (2001)
6. Reddit (2002)
7. Digg (Somewhere around 2004)
8. Flickr (2004)
9. MakeUseOf (2006)
10. TUAW (2004)
A lot of things have changed since these sites were started but one interesting thing to note is that logos of few sites haven’t changed much till now! For example – Reddit, engadget, flickr.
Well, this is just the start of the WWW Revolution and it won’t stop anytime in the future.
Please note that some of the above images of their respective sites and their launch dates are not the same (like of Apple) but actually of the oldest archives having a proper stylesheet and images
