If you have been active on the internet for the last twenty years, you would probably recognise many of the names on this chart created by The Washington Post, which tracks the 20 most popular websites every year from 1996 to 2013.

Not only does this chart brings you down memory lane, but it also offers an interesting look at how the internet has evolved in the past two decades.

For instance, it is noteworthy that AOL took the top spot from 1996 to 2002 before being unseated by Yahoo, which was in turned ousted by Google in 2008.

It is also fun to find out the years in which internet-based tech giants such Facebook, Aamzon, and eBay first made their appearances on this chart.
