Dejavu provides old browser emultators, allowing you to view period web sites and current websites through emulaltors of historical browsers such as Mosaic and Netscape 1.0. This trip down memory lane reminded me of the pleasure of those first white backgrounds on the web. Until Explorer 2.0, grey was the default. I’m not sure if you could change the background colour until then. I guess I’ll be using this in one of those “history of the web” lectures I’ll be giving in a week or two. My oldest extant website is from 1998, quite ancient, really. I still like it. Not the looks, exactly, but the writing and the way it’s built. It’s not bad at all.
