Anyone remember Apple Excite?

Apple's web portal for a time. When?

I wonder who owns it now?

I still use it.

No. Apple Excite was the default URL for IE a couple of years ago.

It moved in 2001.

[www.macworld.com]

Apple partnered with Excite for a few years to produce Apple's default web page portal. Eventually, Apple switched their co-branded startpage elsewhere (Earthlink, IIRC), before finally making their own: [www.apple.com]

I remember Excite came out with a very, very cool 3D search engine (the name escapes me right now, but I'll find it) several years ago...utilized Flash, etc...and even still today, would be pretty slick looking and modern. Ahead of its time, that's for sure.

It never took off for searches and whatnot, but it was pretty to look at, listen to, and navigate with, I thought.

It looks like a possible replacement for Yahoo if I'd want to change.

You need to log in to get your personalized page.

I never did go to the 'apple.excite.com' very much but I used to visit excite.com regularly way back when (pre-Google).

I migrated from Excite to [myway.com] It was owned by the same people.
It is exactly the same--Free--and with no ads...and they both have the best TV listings I have every seen
