Webbed Feet celebrated its 18th birthday this year, with the directors Aaron and Alex each having over 20 years of experience creating websites.
So, for a bit of fun, we’ve taken a look back in time and grabbed a few screenshots of websites from household names, mostly from 2001, the year that we were established.
To put this into context, when we started creating websites social media wasn’t a thing. Most people connected to the Internet using 56Kbps modems, including us. Google was in its infancy and people used search engines such as the now-defunct AltaVista. Netscape Navigator was one of the main browsers. eBay had competition from QXL as an auction website. Most people used Windows 95 as their operating system. And Aaron and Alex had hair!
Anyway, here are some older websites including our own – enjoy.
