Internet has a lot of flash in the moments of panoramic, either a meme or a complete company, but it is surprising how many of the forgotten websites still exist and work.
MySpace, whose logo appears and vanishes in a balloon at the opening of the popular Silicon Valley technology television show, is still available. Not only does MySpace continue to work, but it is also updated with the news of the day.
MySpace is now less a social networking site these days and more a mix of streaming music and videos. According to SF Gate, it appears as 1,745 of the sites in the United States in traffic on Alexa.
Napster also continues to work, but instead of being a copy and run service, once it was for free music through the MP3, now it is a subscription-based music service. Napster was shut down after a lawsuit led by Metallica involved the closing of the site's original player service.
Today on Napster? The MP3 service once worked and was executed in the dark by Metallica has been updated since its heyday rouge and is now an honest service, of monthly charge, transmission similar to Spotify
Hot or not: it still exists, and you can still value or value someone according to your photo, but it has been modified since it was bought by a Russian dating company, and now it has features that look a lot like Tinder (see the red flamed logo )
Now Napster is what Spotify is. Both charge for the transmission service, both go for $ 9.99 a month, only the first has 83 million subscribers monthly payments and the last only 3 million.
Hot or Not, the once popular site that was the brain of two UC Berkeley students in 2000, was designed to grade people's pictures of their "itch" on a scale of 1 to 10.
However, I did have the option of communicating between two people who liked the photos of others, as well as the typical online dating interfaces.
Hot or Not bought by Russia Badoo dating service in 2012, according to SF Gate.
The scale from 1 to 10 was abandoned for something similar to a Tinder format like & # 39; Yes & # 39; or & # 39; No & # 39; that endures on your website. It even has a similar flaming mobile app icon.
Citysearch is another site that has long been overshadowed by Yelp since 2010. But it is still running.
The company was founded in 1995, where locals could go for recommendations on various businesses.
Yelp essentially pushed Citysearch to the most important corners of the Internet traffic ranking. The reviews are all labeled as "published over a year ago", with their traffic languishing in the rankings at 18,427 in Alexa traffic.
Before Google Maps existed on their phones, MapQuest was. People would literally print their map and driving directions before going out on the road.
Citysearch is now like a haunted abyss of criticism from days gone by, but it is still active and functioning
MySpace has changed over the years and now it is less a social networking site and more a mix of music, news and videos
Mapquest, where you will once again print your travel itinerary, still works, but with GoogleMaps and AppleMaps on your phones that tell you how to get there … printing something just feels like a waste of paper
The company predates the World Wide Web, in the 1960s when it printed physical maps.
It was a booming website in the mid-2000s and AOL bought it for about $ 1 billion in 1999, before it became obsolete with apps on phones like Google and Apple Maps.
However, you can still plan your trip through the Mapquests website. And it's still quite high, considering how far the web has come, reaching 537th place in the US traffic. UU In Alexa.
A long time ago, when the Internet was beginning to become a domestic product, in the mid-1990s, there was Netscape Navigator. It was the first web browser you used.
It was very popular for a short time and was in a fiery war for users with Internet Explorer of Micorosoft. It was sold to AOL for $ 4.2 billion in 1998.
However, as with the Internet, the advantage of Microsoft's combination with its operating system was too great to compete.
In 2007 AOL removed the browser, but it still exists as a simple website with a search engine powered by Bing.
