The Early DaysSillyDog701 started as a personal homepage of Antony Shen in the beginning of 1997. Nothing special back then, just an average personal homepage with some dynamic HTML effects. Yes, Netscape's dynamic HTML. The homepage featuring 5 sections, Contents, About Me, What's New, Feedback, and Acknowledgment. Today, SillyDog701 still has those 5 pages.
Now, the first masterpiece, Netscape Communicator Tips in pure dynamic HTML. The entire page if full of dynamic HTML. Dynamic HTML is no thing special, but it was when Netscape Communicator was just out. Since then, I learnt more of web design and love Netscape so much.

During 1999, I worked as an editor for Open Directory Project (DMOZ.org), by a chance, I noticed Nick Barrett's Netscape Browser Archive. I seeked the right to mirror and enhance it. Not long after, the original Netscape Browser Archive were no longer maintained and the SillyDog701's Netscape Browser Archive became the most popular section of SillyDog701.
The main focus of Netscape Browser Archive is not just links for all new and old Netscape browsers, but also the popular Netscape Streamline series.

Since the very beginning of the Netscape Browser Archive, there has been a forum for all the support. The supporting forum soon became the heart of SillyDog701. In 2001, the forum became Netscape Browser Archive Message Forum, and it is still available for archiving purpose.
In July 2002, a new message board has replaced the old forum. Although it is based on the popular phpBB forum, there are a lot of customisations to give it a unique feeling of SillyDog701, no need to mention the very unique UserAgent String displaying along the posts.
SillyDog701 Message Centre has soon became a friendly community centre, not just Netscape/Mozilla supporting forum.
