The Good Ole' Days

Come back with us now to those days of yesteryear, when the only way to see the web was with a semi-homemade browser. Deja Vu offers an old-timey browser emulator, so you can see your own website as it would look to someone using NCSA Mosaic.

Giggle. You'll notice I've jumped through at least one hoop to make Flutterby still usable in early browsers. Once I feel comfortable deploying the CSS version it'll proabbly look even better.

And I do still use Lynx occasionally.
