  • First wrote code on a TI83 calculator
  • Table layouts and spacer gifs — no one coded CSS
  • "DHTML" was a term for JS + HTML
  • Wrote things like getElementsByClassName with walking DOM nodes because jQuery didn't exist yet
  • Firebug changed everything
  • Coding pixel perfect layouts IE6 was HARD
  • XMLHttpRequest — original Ajax blew my mind
  • Flash intros 😂

This is what we do now, though, because jQuery is bloated and uncool. Time is a flat circle :)

Well, now we can use querySelectorAll and it does everything for us.

Oh, man. Spacer gifs are the one I thought of when I saw this topic. And I remember what a miracle Firebug was when it was released.
