This virtual museum shows us how websites, browsers and software have evolved in recent years

Not so many years ago, the internet, browsers and software in general were very different. Its operation has changed, new functionalities have been incorporated and, above all, its design has evolved in an incredible way. Most of today's interfaces are a far cry from those seen in the early nineties.

We can see all this in the Web Design Museum. A virtual museum that shows us a selection of more than 1,600 websites that aim to show the trends in web design between 1991 and 2006. But not only pages, but also browsers like Internet Explorer or programs like Photoshop.

Most of today's interfaces are very different from those seen in the early nineties, is what the Web Design Museum shows

A travel in the time

Apple 2001

Apple's website in 2001. / Web Design Museum

He Web Design Museum allows us to see, for example, what Apple's website was like in 2001, Pizza Hut's in 1996, Hotmail in 2000 or The New York Times in 1996. In the museum we can also find what Adobe Photoshop was like in 1992, the Mozilla browser in 2002 or Microsoft FrontPage 98 in 1997.

Accessing each of the screenshots, in the case of the programs, we access a file in which its history and characteristics are briefly explained to us. In the rest of the elements, on the web for example, by clicking on their images we can see the screenshots in a larger size.

Web Design Museum takes us on a journey through time through web and software interfaces

Another interesting point of the Web Design Museum is the section Timelines, which we can see in the top menu of the web. From here we can access the timeline of the evolution of web design for pages such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Netflix, eBay, Twitter, Nintendo or Microsoft.
