View the web from a decade ago
tenyearsago.io A decade is a lifetime in internet terms. Back in 2007, Twitter was still in its infancy and Pinterest, Snapchat and Instagram didn’t even exist. We did have Youtube, Reddit, Amazon, the BBC, Apple and IMDB, however, and you can see exactly how they looked back then by visiting Ten Years Ago. Click any of the 15 logos and you can go straight to that company’s decade-old homepage, courtesy of the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine ( web. archive.org). You can marvel at how cluttered Youtube looked and how cramped the pre-iplayer BBC site (above) was. You’ll also see Apple showing off the first iphone and an Amazon site that makes no mention of the Kindle – the groundbreaking e-reader wasn’t launched until November. All the content linked to on the site is refreshed each day.
