SLIDESHOW: through the years on the Web's 25th birthday

Posted: / 1996 / 1996 / 2014 / 2014

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The World Wide Web celebrated its 25th birthday on Wednesday.

To celebrate the World Wide Web's birthday, we're taking a look at through the years. Thanks to the Wayback Machine, we were able to get screenshots of the home page going back to 1996!
