Evolution of Today’s Popular Websites

Posted by Chris DeMarco on Thursday, September 3rd, 2009 at 6:57 pm

I just came across this outstanding post on Telegraph.co.uk looking at how some of today’s most popular websites looked when they were first launched.

It’s somewhat interesting that the more recent sites look worse than the older ones. Overall though, not too many surprises. The news company sites looked awesome (money will do that), and so did Amazon. And it’s funny how all today’s really successful sites like Google, Yahoo, YouTube, and Twitter looked terrible when they first started out, but not surprising. Oh, and Craigslist looks about the same.
