What is surfing? And what’s that World Wide Web all about? A curious Internet guide from 1990.
1990? I don’t think so, maybe 1995….
Definitely not 1995 David. The computer is definitely running windows 3.something… That looks like a very early version of Netscape… And those web pages absolutely scream “dawn of HTML”.
really not 1995. You must be very young and not know the internet history, I was 23 in 1995.
92-93, i say.
Well, the WWW was available for public from 1st august 1991 on, so i doubt this video being from 1990 as well
Funny as this is, it’s almost painful to watch
Sadly, David is probably correct. Netscape wasn’t released until late 1994:
“…Mosaic Netscape 0.9, released on October 13, 1994..”
I’ve been using TCP/IP since the mid-80’s on BARRNET (using Trumpet WinSock). I’m familiar with the history.
Perhaps a better title would’ve been “A curious guide from the 1990’s”…
Considering the first version of Netscape was released in 1994, this is definitely not from 1990, 1995 sounds about right
Is that Tobias?
definately mr. fĂĽnke
i’m still waiting for the Arrested development credits.
Remember, You need at least 4mb of ram…
and the little key to wind it up
cant belive ppl where lik that back then.
It’s: “Can’t, Believe, and Were”. Oh, and LMAO…
Thank you correcto thank you very much
You are asking why were they dumb, but by looking at your post, I suspect you’re the silly one..
Oh the unintended humor of your comment… Thanks for the chuckle, sir.
This was so intense I couldn’t watch the whole thing.
Why did they bleep out the word “sports”?
They tried to make it sound like they were saying ’se x.’
Which of course with us knowing what half the web is used for today, was a fantastic irony. hahaha
Its called a joke.
Because they knew you’d be confused.
Try 1992, you know, the year HTML was created on a NeXT computer.
remember this old time, with my 486 AMD 66 cyrix 4mb of ram and a 2400 b/s (means 2.4k/s) i was 12 years old and i chatted with my friend using “comit” a old application for file and message exchange…
Wow…I feel so old
when that drum kicks in at 2 mins, I thought I was about to be rickrolled
As old as the internet itself.
“Wow! She’s clicking that thing like a pro!”
+1 to the rickrolled comment. I had the same feeling.
thats the inernet?
damn the 90s were good
i loled @ the old style webpages and the 8bit pr0n
I remember the net being a little more then that in 1994, but then again a long time ago.
It is very obvious that this video is photoshopped. I can tell from the pixels and from seeing quite a few in my time.
nice try troll
Well, my second computer WAS a 486 DX2 66 mhz, like in the video. and a HDD of 640 mb(compressed). And I bought it brand new in 1993. The sites on internet didnt look like this (on video) before 1997… Still love Netscape! Thx for PPP and undernet remembrance!
“400 megabyte hard drive…”
Also, I loved how the 500×200 .jpg took up the whole screen.
The “Internet Underground Music Archive” was launched in 1992, and was purchased by EMusic in 1998…so it would have to be from sometime in that six year span.
March 1992 is the absolute earliest this video could have been made because the 486 DX66 wasn’t available to anyone before then. And since their “recommended” computer spec also includes a 400MB hard drive, I would place the date between 1993 and 1994.
Who is the babe? I want her!
aahhh… and look at us now… the sum of all human knowledge and we are searching for brittney spears and lolcats
that lady called him a newbie a ta beginning
remember guys you need at least 4 megs of ram,yeah yeah i know that’s a lot to ask these days…..
WOW! I was like 7 when this was released… if it was in fact released in 1990!!!
Who cares how old you where when this was released.
There were no womenz on teh internets in the ninety’s.
Sorry, Curt, Netscape wasn’t around in 1990 … nor was the World Wide Web. That was 1991, and Mosaic the first well known browser came out in 1992. Netscape was developed later. 1994, actually.
Why is everyone still trying to figure out when this video was made? Wasn’t this established already? Look above.
As commented earlier, the video is from 1995, earliest. IUMA wasn’t launched until 1993 (and took a couple of years to become really popular) and the first version of Netscape Navigator 1.0 (I’m not sure if it’s 1.0 though) didn’t have its release until december 14, 1994.
Hahahaha!!! 4 ram!
“mow-dem” Modem grass down! P.S. She’s hott!
4 mb of RAM and 400 mb of disk space hahhaha wow times really have changed now its more like 4 Gigs of RAM and 400 Gigs of disk space lol oh how times have changed
This is almost like talking to my parents.
hahahahaha i thought the same thing as a few other people did, that dude looks just like david cross.
Great comment zomg, so true!
Dial up is so much faster than i remember it.
