This is an obvious and blatant appeal to emotion via nostalgia to sell you on a product that has nothing to do with the theme of the commercial.

…Yes it totally worked I am somewhat interested.
The problem is that most people are already satisfied with Firefox and Chrome. Others (myself included) like Opera as well.

These browsers began to be used, because people were dissatisfied with Internet Explorer. Unless people become dissatisfied with their current browsers, then they probably won’t bother trying Internet Explorer, because they still like Firefox/Chrome/Opera.

That was incredibly good, instead of using dubstep and telling us that it’s fast, using nostalgia was really a better way of doing it.


It still loses to the other browsers, it used to be good; If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

I still use Floppy disks (In backup for schoolwork) VHS Tapes (For my film editing I do) Those disposable cameras (found out how to replace film) And my Dialup Modem is plugged in and used frequently. (When my ADSL internet modem breaks)

I can send pictures if you guys want…..

All my older equitment and stuff is shoved away. Never played whatever that game was with the coin things, but everything else I remember like it was yesterday. Wait a second…
Holy shit, 1993 was 20 years ago!

Implying that the 90s weren’t a steaming malodorous cesspool of bad culture choices and chaotic fashion.

This can’t appeal to my sense of nostalgia of the 90s because I have no nostalgia of the 90s to begin with.
