My website complies with the HTML5 specification. I've tested all pages in the newest desktop versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari, and they all look and work as intended. I can't be bothered to ensure compatibility with old browsers.

Here are some pictures of different versions of my website.
All I can remember from my original website are the colors blue and green. I no longer have a copy of it, and neither does the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. :(
The color scheme is quite embarrassing, but I guess I must have liked it back then. The buttons on the left are the result of too much use of linear gradient fill styles.
Back to the green and blue colors, but this time with a sidebar. I still like this design, and I also got a lot of praise for it, but it was too cumbersome to maintain.
Basically the same design as the last one, but with frames and better looking links. It was easier to maintain because the menus were independent.
I grew tired of the previous design, so I made a new one from scratch. I decided to focus more on the actual contents, and I think it went pretty well. I also started using PHP which made a lot of things much easier.
For some time I wanted to make a more impressive design than the previous one, but I always ended up failing. Even though the design might be a bit boring to look at, I do find it clean, stylish, and pleasant.
But something had to happen. I decided to keep the basic design, but with rounded corners, soft shadows, and more graphics. I also added a title banner, moved the breadcrumb links below that, and changed the page width to match a resolution of 1024 x 768 instead of 800 x 600.
Small changes this time. Larger text, larger line height, and larger thumbnails. Removed descriptive text from menus. Also put an advert at the top of every page.
Even smaller changes this time. Optimized the design using CSS for rounded borders and soft shadows. Changed the banner font. Also translated the whole website into English.
Made the whole website mobile friendly. Made the topbar smaller and removed the navigation line below it. Widened the page a bit, made the text larger, adjusted the headline colors slightly, and increased the resolution of thumbnails.
