Windows 98 was my very first exposure to PCs,but by the time I got my own it had already been replaced by its successor, Windows XP. At the time, I thoroughly dreaded the 98 aesthetic. I found XPs vivid color scheme and rounded corners infinitely more appealing.

XPs design seemed more modern to my eyeballs back then. But with time, Ive come to develop a keen appreciation for the 98 aesthetic. Im not the only one: Up to this day, people are still paying homage to this classic look with Windows 98-inspired DIY gadgets and appreciation sites just like98.css.

Its a new CSS library that lets you effortlessly build interfaces in the likeness of Windows 98. If youve been thinking about recreating that look for one of your upcoming projects, you should absolutely have a gander at it.

98.css comes with several pre-styled components, including buttons, checkboxes, textboxes, a dropdown menu, and a window among others.

The library uses semantic HTML and doesnt contain any JavaScript, which means you can easily apply it to a variety of frontend projects. It simply styles your HTML with a bit of CSS.

Another cool thing is the project is MIT-licensed, which should give you enough flexibility to tweak it to your needs.
