    Thats a great website. I found there is no major change in google. But I noticed a lot of changes in Yahoo and Twitter.

    Interesting view of sites there. Archive.org is a good site if you want to view how sites looked in the past and how they developed over time.

    The ones that I felt changed most were Dell.com and WhiteHouse.gov.

    Thanks for sharing such a nice site.
    Thanks
    No I think Google changed a lot. In 1998 - http://web.archive.org/web/19981202230410/http://www.google.com/

    If compare to the website now, of course all of them look not professional enough. However, this kind of website is the best during that time. And they are all provide good and informative content, and this is the key they are success nowadays, not just depend on the layout and design

    Every site in the opening looks not good and unprofessional but when the time passes and they becomes popular the things are changed. I have seen many such sites and i.e Google - very unprofessional logo in the opening. Yahoo - was just search engine in 1996 and the first page was full with links. Facebook was also very different from now. DP was very very different in starting, it was in PHPBB and looked very very odd.

    So, I won't be amazed if BAF will come in this list in future. :D

    few of them have changed drastically,most remained basically the same and that's a good thing.it's great to have something familiar to you in your every day use.
