Using the Internet with legacy web browsers today

Not many websites work with older (pre-2000) web browsers. So I went ahead and compiled a list of websites that work. I also made a easily-accessible gateway website to access archived copies of a selection of great websites that you can browse with your retro machine.

If you would like to see archived web pages as they appeared on a certain year, you can use something like However isn't directly compatible with old web browsers, so you can use the gateway site to easily open up old web sites with retro hardware. Open up with any legacy web browser!

Linux was released to the world from this website. It is still maintained, and works with legacy web browsers.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. The site was down for a couple of years. It was recently resurrected.
