Surf Old Web Pages on Emulated Old Browsers: OldWeb.today

by Lambert Varias

Websites like the Internet Archive let you check out old web pages, even ones that no longer exist. But if you want to get a more authentic classic browsing experience, you should check out OldWeb.today.

Made by Ilya Kremer, OldWeb.today lets you browse websites from various online archives using a variety of Web browsers such as Mosaic, Netscape and Internet Explorer within your actual browser. Modern versions of Firefox and Chrome are there as well. As far as I can tell many of the browsers’ functions are implemented – you can open new windows, view a page’s source code etc. I’m not sure if the considerable lag is intentional, but it certainly helps bring back memories. Bad memories.

OldWeb.today also has a random surf button in case you don’t have a specific website or time in mind. Check out Ilya’s GitHub page for its source code.
