    The broken image in my earlier post was Yahoo's original home page when it was a directory (like DMOZ) not a search engine - somewhat ironic considering they are pretty much defunct now too.

    AJ was fun.

    Also of the era: Lycos, Altavista.

    This is one of the first web sites my company worked on:
    https://web.archive.org/web/19961104...agency.gov.uk/

    We had to also provide a text-only version because dial-up was so slow.

    That environment agency webpage looks much less dated than it should, given it's over twenty years old. I think it's the green 'buttons' down the RHS which are doing it. It'd be an interesting exercise to view it on a 'monitor' with the correct aspect ratio and resolution to see what it really looked like again.

    Thanks! We were rather pleased with it too.

    1024x768 iirc. No concept of fluid page design back then!
