Lucas Reilly on mental_floss has put together this amusing list of seventeen ancient abandoned websites that still work. There's quite a few gems (more to be found on 404 page found), including fan pages to specific actors, something that has faded out since the advent of Facebook. Oh, and the Netscape page. Remember Netscape? No? Lucky you.

Netscape may be gone, but the original communications site lives on. But remember, “To get around, just single-click on any blue or purple word or phrase.”
