How Was Technology 20 Years Ago?

What is Happening: Lets Take A Look At Technology 20 Years Ago.

Innovation 20 years back as of now had the web, obviously. In any case, just a couple of PCs were associated with it. So what do you think innovation is that time? 

How Was The Internet Then 

The web of 20 years prior was, will we say, "crude". It was known as the World Wide Web. There were just around 10,000 sites when contrasted with the present 45 billion site pages. Also, there were just two million PCs associated with the web amid that time. Today, there are very nearly four billion web clients. 

Applications On The Internet Then 
Obviously there were at that point applications on the web at that point. Amazon, Yahoo! Also, Mosaic Communications (later known as Netscape) were initially arranges. Netscape Navigator was the main business internet browser propelled at that point. Two years after came Microsoft Internet Explorer. At that point ten years after came the Mozilla Firefox.

How Computers Functioned

Internet was mostly used by scientists and clients then. But computers used floppy disks then. And it required telephones to literally dial a connection. The internet connection was made available through America on Line (AOL) and Compuserve. Sites had to give internet users instructions since no one knew what they were doing.

Other Information

Then US Vice President Al Gore used the phrase “information superhighway”. A year later the internet became popular in movies. Films like “Hackers” ( which starred Angelina Jolie) and Sandra Bullock’s “The Net” was released in the movies. Jolie was even quoted as saying that “talking to people all over the place…it’s amazing”.

More Innovations

The first banner was launched by Wired (so they claim). Graphics for AT&T and Zima, changed advertising forever. These graphics generated revenue for websites that did not charge users for access. It offered clients real numbers for how many saw their ad and clicked on it.
The first radio station to broadcast online was WXYC at the University of North Carolina. It paved the way for an audio streaming industry. This now includes Spotify, Pandora, and iHeartRadio. The first Online Shopping transaction was done for a pizza by Pizza Hut. While students from Swarthmore created the first online “secure market”. They called it NetMarket.
As the years go by innovations were made to improve and develop technology. That is why we enjoy the ease of doing hassle-free transactions and works.
