By David Filo, Co-Founder & Chief Yahoo In 1995, Jerry and I started Yahoo to help people more easily navigate the web. We wanted to build a guide. When we came up with the idea, it wasn’t designed to be a business, it was simply something we found useful. When we realized other people found it useful, we were motivated to work on it even more.
Twenty years later, the core of Yahoo is still the same.
Happy Birthday to Yahoo, the web portal, search engine and pioneer of what we know as the World Wide Web. Without their vision and determination our Internet Experience would be radically different. Many people over the years have relied upon Yahoo to help them navigate the Internet and to discover exciting things. Also there’s the famous Yahoo email service that still is relevant and useful to millions. So here’s to twenty more years of making the web a better and more accessible place.
