Description:

Haha! I did it! 90s Derpibooru in Internet Explorer 4 on Windows 95!

Ok, I may have cheated a tiny bit.
The website can't be opened by such an old browser, so I took a screenshot of the site and uploaded it on Imgur. I actually did open that screenshot in IE4 on Win95, though, that's real.
The address bar still shows an entered address even if it doesn't load, so inputting "derpibooru.org" after opening the screenshot was no problem.
The taskbar entry showing "Homepage — Derpiboo…" also is real, though not quite. Since the actual page doesn't load and thus doesn't display its title in the taskbar, I opened a Google search for "Homepage — Derpibooru", which results in a title of "Homepage — Derpibooru — Google Search" that Windows helpfully cuts off.

Unfortunately I had to do some minor image editing, after all. I had to remove the taskbar entry of the screenshot saying "http://i.imgur…" and replace the corresponding title bar at the top with "Homepage — Derpibooru" from the search (after removing "- Google Search").
For a 100% editing free picture, I guess I could have hosted a simple website displaying the screenshot and using the correct page title somewhere… Is GeoCities still around?

Fun fact: I did this while listening to canyon.mid and other classic tunes.

find all instances of "display: flex;" in our CSS. replace that with "display: block;", then watch it burn

In this case, the main problem was that IE4 does only support TLS 1.0 and thus couldn't even connect to Derpibooru at all. No idea how broken the site would have been if it had worked.

The site is actually not able to work on older browsers because of our heavy reliance on modern CSS and HTML5 features, such as the flexbox layout method. Without it, the entire site breaks in dramatic fashion.

I would have done something like that if I already had a running server somewhere, but I didn't feel like setting one up just for this joke. Taking two screenshots was faster.

You could have have set derpibooru.org in the HOSTS file to point at a machine on your LAN serving up a simple HTML page serving nothing but a BMP image of your screenshot.

Just sayin.

You need to turn of text anti-aliasing for the maximum 90's effect.

Yes, Windows 95/98 did have simple text AA but most people didn't enable it.
