Miss the ’90s? Try Geocities-izer!


Who remembers the good ol’ ’90s, when the Internet was still in its infancy? There was no HTML5, no Adobe Flash, no Youtube, and Google had barely taken its roots on the Internet.

Geocities came online around 1995 as a free web page service. Soon, gaudy-looking web pages with GIF animations and retro graphics were popping up faster than a colony of rabbits could reproduce. In 1999, Yahoo! bought the service for around 3.5 billion dollars. It was closed ten years later. As Yahoo! released in a statement, “we have decided to focus on helping our customers explore and build relationships online in other ways.”

But now, you can relive the nostalgia! The website WonderTonic has provided a free tool to make almost any website look like it was made “by a 13-year old.” It takes you back to the days when tiled backgrounds, GIFs, and site hit counters ruled the Web. You can find this tool at http://wonder-tonic.com/geocitiesizer/. Happy Geocities-izing!
