Using the Internet with classic web browsers

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.

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!

If you know of websites that will work with a pre-2000 web browser, feel free to send your suggestion through the contact me -link on the main page. Thanks!

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.
