Here’s What 10 Of The Internet’s Biggest Sites Looked Like 15 Years Ago

If you’ve never heard of the Wayback Machine, it’s essentially a “time machine” created by archive.org to take you back to different points in Internet history. It’s also a great time waster — you’ve been warned.

I put together a list of 10 major websites and went back 15 years. A few of them didn’t exist that long ago, so I grabbed the earliest snapshots that were available. Talk about Throwback Thursday, right? I guess I’m on a nostalgia kick this week.
