It's been more than 20 years since the release of Windows 95. But now it's coming back, instead of buying a dedicated PC in 1995 that would cost a thousand dollars or more, you can now use trusty Windows 95 on your favorite Internet browser! Andrea Faulds a student of a Scottish University has created a Windows 95 Emulator that works with Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and other browsers.

Windows 95 is running on Em-DOSBox, a version of DOSBox that can be compiled using Emscripten. This tool takes code generated from C/C++ and compiles it to JavaScript - the scripting language supported across web browsers.

When asked why Faulds created the emulator, the answer is nostalgia.

"I really wanted to recreate the experience of using Windows 95 from my childhood."
