Did you know that AOL’s instant messenger AIM officially shut down in 2017? Or that the internet is just under 11,000 days old? Crazy, right?

To be honest, the internet as an entity is still baffling to me. I used to think that I had to download Google Chrome from iTunes and that the global internet history was all saved on a Windows 98 desktop computer in a dusty room somewhere. Now, I know better. (Sort of. Is it saved somewhere? The Cloud?)

Anyway, in honor of the World Wide Web’s 30th birthday, we’re quizzing you on your internet knowledge. Hopefully all your screen time has taught you something. P.S. Scroll to the end for answers!
