Microsoft Celebrates 20 Years on the World Wide Web!

Updated: Jun 16, 2021

This year Microsoft is also celebrating an anniversary.  Two decades on the World Wide Web! In celebration, Microsoft has recreated its original website that launched back in 1994. As you can see from the image shown, dated is probably the nicest thing anyone can say about it. Microsoft’s website went up only five years after the Web itself was created, and a year before it released its own Web browser, Internet Explorer.

It only managed to beat the White House, not then thought of as a technological pioneer, by a few months. Today Microsoft is one of the top 10 most visited sites in the world. Still, it’s worth taking a look at the old site, created in large part as a place to put support information for its computers and other products.
