For anyone who cannot remember anything before broadband, this is a taste of what using the internet would have been like. This is great thing to use from mass:werk and yes it actually really does do a cool Google style  search for you, for best results though, select “S” as this returns a search page such as you have never seen before.

 

These are the details on how the cool 1980′s style version of Google was made;
