-Not many websites work with older (pre-2000web 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. ​+Support for old web browsers is getting rare. Older pre-2000 web browsers ​may struggle displaying website content. So I went ahead and compiled a list of websites that do 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. ​

However Archive.org 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 http://​wayback.steptail.com with any legacy web browser! If you would like to see archived web pages as they appeared on a certain year, you can use something like Archive.org.
