The first universal line-mode browser

During the 1990s a visitor to CERN’s early homepage would have seen something like this. This looks much more primitive than the NeXT screen shots, and it was! But it was the first universal line mode browser that allowed anyone access to the Web, regardless of the kind of computer system used. When compared with the current homepage for CERN, most of the information provided is the same.
