NETTUTS.com has posted their top ten list of some of the largest milestones in web development - one of which is the release of PHP.
Some believe the progression of the great World Wide Web to be a travesty, others a godsend. Regardless, the Internet has evolved over the past few decades, and is in many ways better for the web developer.

Here's a few from their list:
