The Steptail Wayback Proxy Server serves older (circa 90's) web browsers with pages from the era. It is the easiest way to browse the Internet as it was in 1996 through 1998.
You'll need a working Internet connection on your retro computer. This can be either with a direct network connection, or by using the Raspberry Pi Virtual Modem.
The server address at this moment is wayback.steptail.com and runs on the port 8080.
We are in the process of archiving popular websites with an emphasis in having a complete experience with working website features. This means that the data downloaded may not be 100% exactly original, as I work to fix broken links and dynamic features such as web search. Some websites have been manually and painstakingly restored to their original state from various sources (including archive.org), while some sites do not exist on the proxy server at this time. If you have ideas culturally significant websites, I take suggestions!
Proxy server is currently in closed BETA ! If you would like to join testing, please contact.
I will be running and testing the proxy server on various web browsers, so you'll know to expect that these work.
