Browser & cross-platform display issues meant that most GIF images needed to stay within a strict 216-color palette back then.

The fact that I only see one or two sites I worked on back in 1996-1998 (IBM, Macromedia, I think there was one other one) is a bit sad; websites are so ephemeral and when entire once-ubiquitous tech disappears (Flash), so does a huge chunk of visual history.
In my opinion, one of the nicest sites we worked on in that late-90s era was the 1998 Olympic site, which really pushed what the web could do back then, way before Flash. It could switch to Japanese on the fly, had interactive games, animation… and was just an insane amount of work.
