And the original list:
- All those “X Ate My Balls” sites
- Birdhouse.org and all those great early art pieces.
- Art.net – one of the first online galleries that I ever saw. It blew me away.
- Netscape 3.0 Beta 3 (I think) that allowed you to have animated gifs as your background. I personally crashed dozens of browsers with my original site (‘lo those many years ago).
- The SGI Cool Zone in Netscape 2.0.
- All those cool things that didn’t last – VRML 1.0, Virtual Places and The Hub (one of the first 3D avatar chat systems).
- AOL 2.5 with its horrible web browser (booklink), but with the buddy list, which revolutionized IM.
- GNN – Global Network Navigator was a site (think early Yahoo) that was once more popular than Yahoo.
