Since we introduced our approach to Emulation in the Browser (now simply called The Emularity) back in 2013, there’s always been plans to continually improve the experience and advance the various web technologies that make it happen.
As of today, the Internet Archive now has a majority of emulated platforms running in WebAssembly.
What is WebAssembly?
What do I need to do?
Also, if this is the first time you’ve become aware we’re emulating over 80,000 software titles in the browser.. well, you have a lot of software history to look forward to.
Thanks to Dan Brooks and everyone on the Emularity team for helping to advance us to the next level, as well as the many people working on the WebAssembly standard, to ensure software history is one click away.
We’re always interested in bug reports, or noticing strangeness, so definitely mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into issues or want more information.
I bought my first computer in 1985, a 128k Mac. Such a treat to look back at software of the time and marvel at how much was done with so few resources. Looking forward to seeing Aldus Pagemaker running one of these days – now THAT was a slick piece of software.
my first computer in 1990, ZX Spectrum 🙂
