The internet worked fine in 1996. Naturally, it took a lot more effort to use it then, to set up your system properly.

To me, the internet was a big gaming portal. My first taste was Warcraft 2 in '95. There was a program called Kali out that could make the game think that the internet was one big lan, and so you could connect with up to 8 other people over the net.
I had a 28.8k modem at the time. It's hilarious...if I connect at anything less than 300K today I get pissed.
Porn was cool of course, but in those ages you had to wait for one image to download, so it'd start at the top, and closely reveal the rest. So you could seriously sit there and focus on a woman's boobs for minute before waiting for the love muffin to finally appear.

I don't think I even had an internet hookup until '99 or '00.
