View the web from a decade ago

Web User - - What’s New Online - 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. 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.
