Go back in time Digitally- Internet archives- Wayback machine

So here is a very cool website that allows a user to go back in time digitally, they call it “WAYBACK MACHINE” and the website is archive.org .

It basically contains screenshots of almost every good website from the year it started till now. For instance consider google.comLet’s go back in time digitally!

So, Google was first founded on 4 September 1998, Menlo Park, California, United States.

If you search Google.com in the way back machine you will get a calendar like this(image below) and you can select any highlighted date and get the version of that particular website on that date and use it.

The FIRST IMAGE CAPTURED of google was on 11 November 1998 at 18:45:51. Here is the screenshot of the first-ever image of google.com.

Well yeah google first looked like this!

Now, if we go further in time digitally using the Wayback machine onto 9 April 2000. On this date, the image captured is shown below.

So, yeah that is what Wayback machine is! You can see how a website looked at a particular point of time and also the amazing fact is you can also use that version of the website.

Like if i have had searched “cat” on google on 9 April 2000, the result would be like this (image below).

You can try this out with different websites and use the older versions. For example:- Try Youtube.com

Also, Internet Archive is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more. So you can also find these kind of stuff here.

If you found this interesting and find anything interesting there then do drop the comment below 🙂
