Just for fun, I’ve entered Web Archive to get the Apple’s website version for the last 10 years.
1997 – this is the first version I could get. It was ugly, red, and left aligned!
1999 – Now Apple logo is white on black
2000 – Menu is put on top of page and looks like today’s apple site. Home has 1 big picture of a main product and 4 small pictures. Logo is red. Web site is centralized on browser.
2001 – No big changes from 2000.
2002 – The gray menu is very similar to today’s Apple WebSite. There’s a search field on the bottom of the page, with footer links
2007/2008 – Menu is the same of today’s (2010) – The images from webarchive are broken… 🙂
Site is designed for 1024px width resolutions. Apple becomes WHITE and clean (like my washing machine). Search field goes up (like spotlight in Mac OS X)
