First Web Site

Here’s an article detailing the creation of the very first website! It links to this page, which shows what those first pages looked like.

Interesting tidbits: 1)The first webpage was a DB searching form. Yay! 2)The first browser was much more Napster-like, in that it could scan remote filesystems. Which means that when it shipped commercially, we got a crappy, crippled browser that we’re still suffering through 3)NeXT was the only platform that browsers were available for at first. Oh how sad it is that we’re all not using NeXT boxes.
