Travel In Time: Here's What 10 Ecommerce Sites Used to Look Like

, ,

    Think about how modern the Internet of today is, what with our responsive design and fancy graphics. Back when I first started using the Internet in the mid-90s (I was -2 years old at the time, obviously), things were a lot different. Not only did it take me 20 minutes to download a picture of what I hoped was a new computer and definitely not some weird link that my buddy emailed to me, but the entire web was a weird place. You might not even recognize it today.

    Well, thanks to the Internet Archive and some digging by the people at Shopify, now we do. Here are 10 of the sites that were around back in the day, and what they looked like way back then.

    Makes you kinda happy that we're at where we are today, right?
