How 20 popular websites looked when they were first launched

Have you ever wondered if the high tech web 2.0 designs of our favourite websites existed from their first launching day? Absolutely not! I find my first design better than those 😉

I am sharing a list of 20 popular websites with a screenshot of the main pages at the time of their launch. The launching date is also mentioned for a better idea of the year it existed.  Compare them yourself with their current designs and see the difference. I will also bring you my comparison within some days more possibly after my final exams and obviously that will be for the lazy guys 😛

As always, your comments will be HIGHLY appreciated 🙂
