In 1994, things looked very plain, but your phone bill wasn't affected by images. You did have bandwidth limits, but dial-up speeds didn't give you an easy way to waste that bandwidth.

Oh and I don't really recognize that browser. If I want to turn off images, I can use a text only browser. That's the big thing those days, you know....

2017, The color and resolution can improve. Maybe they can make it look really real. Maybe they can make the pixels so small that you can only see them using a microscope. But it will never pop out of the screen. Thats for sure. :D

Well, you can say that after they began to do business by porn and all D:<

ALso, the can make you THINK it'll pop out the screen, by using a "micro" layer that is so thin you can't see at all and use that as a small .... ..... Thing to see... I forgot the word.... A small plastic thingie with nanochips and all so it would be a off-screen... There is already a keyboard that does something like that and shows the keys and all, so it'll not be that hard... Many other thigns too, but it won't be truly off-screen. :(

That was the first commercial graphical browser called Mosaic. Invented by the boys at University of Illinois that went on to create their own company (with Jum Barksdale's money) called Mosaic Communications and then later renames Netscape.

Ah, those were the good old days of gray backgrounds, blue hyperlinks and making web sites with vi or notepad. The best early web site? The excitement of watching the current level of coffee in a pot at some coffee house in England.

I remember that coffee pot, and Mosaic, for that matter.

In those days I still used to dial direct into BBSs, though.

If this is an add for the Internet, does that mean that the Internet has an owner?
Whoever own Internet must really leet, I bet the end guy is pretty hard to beat..
