Designers at Hyperakt have created an interactive piece illustrating the evolution of the browsers we use to connect with the Web. Beginning with Mosaic in 1993, their piece combines a timeline with screenshots to give viewers a sense of the visual changes in our Web experience over the last (nearly) two decades. They write on their site:

These days, it's hard to imagine a world without videos, photos, web apps and awesome interactive content all over the web. The web has come a long way over the last 20 years and innovation is accelerating.

The piece was commissioned by Google Chrome in honor of the browser's third birthday.
