I remember growing up in the '90s at a time when the Internet playing a much smaller role than it does today. It wasn't near the "necessity" that it is now; it was most commonly used to send e-mails and chat with strangers on AOL. While those things still exist, they're no longer the reason people are crashing servers all over the internet. To celebrate its massive influence on society at large, I've complied a list of ways the Internet has changed everyday life (10 if you ignored the title somehow). Before we begin our list, let's have a moment of silence for both dial-up Internet and paid browsers (like AOL, Netscape and the others that AOL purchased back then thinking it would pay off).
