A weird new Facebook application is propelling, and it depends on bringing back the web of the ’90s. E.gg is the most recent creation from Facebook’s trial application group New Product Experimentation and is planned for “recapturing that atmosphere” of the early web.
The About area of E.gg appears as though an old fashioned Geocities website page, and even has a GIF of the old 3D vivified Oogachacka moving infant – one of the web’s first popular hits.
“We started working on E.gg after a few of us found ourselves missing a certain raw and exploratory spirit that was so emblematic of The Early Internet,” the developers wrote. “Sure, it was clumsy to use — dangerous at times, even — but in that awkward mess was a weird and enlivening bazaar of manically-blinking GIFs, passionate guestbook entries, personal webpages made by people who cared deeply about a niche interest of theirs and wanted simply to carve out their own digital space.”
E.gg can be utilized for making collections and blended media pages for fan destinations or an about page for your own application. When the iOS application dispatches, you can utilize it to make a “canvas” loaded up with GIFs, pictures and text, putting this substance anyplace on the page and picking a URL for the creation.
The shortlist is open now, and the application will be propelled “on a rolling basis.” You can follow E.gg over on Instagram. Now, it has just 350 adherents.
