Website Designs Revolution of Today Most Visited and Popular Sites
If you’re an 70-80’s born chums like me then you’ll remember what the internet look like back in the old arcade days. Its mostly bunch of static stats and 8-bit pixel graphic. I still remember my first computer IBM or game console like NES and ATARI which i used to play games like tennis for two, space war, space invader and the unforgettable Legend of Zelda 1986. Spend most of time with the green ‘Hobbits’ back then 🙂
Today i am going to show you what popular site’s website designs look like back in the early days. We will compare them to how they look now in 2013. The list include the earliest versions of some of the most visited websites today, like Facebook, Google, and Twitter.
As you can see, most popular and most visited sites today started out with just a simple design and layout. Along the way, design revolution had made the site design more compelling and user interface become more important for landing page. Some of the site also use infinite scroll for their large scale news content.
Nether less to say, website design isn’t the main factor for their popularity, many hard work and dedication were put into their website development to become what they are today. Take Youtube and eBay for example. Youtube were originally a dating site and eBay were originally an auction site. Imagine the irony if they still are 😆
