Gather round everyone, and let me tell you a tale of a time before superfast broadband...

1. Everything looking lovely
You can now play Pac-Man on your street via Google, but we remember a time when it used to look like this:
2. Streamlined search options
Of course, Google wasn't the only option available to you when it came to finding stuff online.
3. Ease of access
Even the mere act of going online meant having to listen to dolphins mate for 30 seconds.
15. The world being your oyster when you're online
In order to make new friends you had to venture into things called chatrooms, Usually! On! Yahoo!
Does anyone even remember what a/s/l stood for? Hello?
16. The amazing quality of some viral videos
On a more serious note, we use the internet today to shop, bank, work and even topple governments. But only 20 years ago it was mainly for videos of dancing hamsters. Maybe not a whole lot has changed...
17. Seriously, viral videos have come a long way
Finally, we leave you with this, once the best thing on the internet.
