It only looks outdated, but in fact uses new technologies.
The action of the future Marvel film “Captain Marvel” takes place in 1995, so the studio launched a promotional site that looks like it was in the 90s. The inscriptions are made in Comic Sans, and a significant part of the page is occupied by the simplest gifs.
However, such a site could not exist in 1995 due to the fact that there was simply no such technology at that time. This was noticed in Twitter thread by The Verge senior editor Dieter Bohn.
The journalist began by saying that the page with all the animations “weighs” more than 10 megabytes. In 1995, the fastest modem maintained a speed of 28 kilobits per second, which means that the Captain Marvel website would load for ages.Site too poorly optimized for 1995 by Dieter Bon Screenshot
In addition, the journalist found that in the “guest book” you can find references to the meme “dancing baby”, which appeared only in 1996.
At the end of the thread, Bon apologized to the users and urged to enjoy the “fan site”. However, he explained that you should not try to open it in the NetScape Navigator emulator (the most popular browser in the 90s, ), as the site simply will not work.
