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)
