Evolution of the Web: An Interactive Timeline

Quite a bit has changed from over the last two decades of web development. This highly interactive timeline charts the introduction of new technologies and browser versions with additional information on each.

Simply mouse over the timeline to see individual technologies and browsers and how they are interconnected. Click on a technology to read more about it or a browser to review screenshots of its evolution. Thanks Kip!

Evolution of the Web

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
