The Internet has changed vastly since its inception, but it remains a period where the Internet and its users needed a decent search engine as much as people used and needed a phone book.
Cloudflare celebrates its 13th birthday. They celebrate by looking back at other notable big releases, such as the iPhone 4 and the very first iPad. Cloudflare has helped shape the Internet with universal SSL, protecting Internet traffic for its users and the service protecting many large-scale applications and corporate networks.
