An Interactive Look Back at the Evolution of the Internet

An Interactive Look Back at the Evolution of the Internet

Hey, not only is today's my cat Eames' 10th birthday, but it also happens to be our browser of choice's 3rd birthday. The team at Google Chrome put together this most excellent interactive infographic plotting the timeline of major web technologies and browsers (remember using Netscape 1.0 back in 1994?) in celebration of their browser's special day.

We're currently Chrome users, but prior to that used Opera for half the year, and Firefox+Safari for a long while before (alongside a few other niche browsers like Rockmelt along the way) . The only browser we haven't had much experience using is Internet Explorer, so our browser loyalty is short-lived at best. With each release and plug-in/extensions updates, our choice in browsers change here to there, depending upon speed, stability and UI changes. Others we know are consistently browser monogamous, but where's the fun in that?
