This is Microsoft’s very first web page in 1994. Because it had a picture, it took a long time to load.

1994 was also the year Yahoo was founded. This is what its web page looked like.

Instead of the Web, most people used paid, dial-up online services like AOL. You paid for every minute you used it.

You installed AOL through a floppy disk (or CD) that arrived unasked-for in the mail.

There were no thumb drives or cloud storage. You backed up files on a floppy disk also.

Because email was expensive (and not everyone had it), the fax machine was uber popular.
