Our web design crew took a quick jump in the TARDIS to travel back in time online (aka browsing Wayback Machine) to have look at some of the most popular websites in their start-up days. Think about the websites you visit on a daily basis. Google, Facebook, and Amazon all started as awkward unknowns and have since gone through multiple revisions and redesigns over the years to evolve with their market, audience, and technology.
