evolt.org is an all-volunteer organization that relies onthe contributions of its members to operate and function. Thanks in part to the generous commitment of the web community, evolt.org provides renowned resources and information without advertisements. Here is a list of some of the services we provide:
- The Browser Archive
The largest browser archive available anywhere!
Articles, tutorials and news items written by our members and available free to any visitor.
- List Servs
Numerous email lists to help disseminate knowledge to the web development community, and to help run evolt.org.
- The Directory Project
A searchable directory containing links covering web design and development.
The opportunities and services we provide are an increasing drain onevolt.org's limited finances. Bandwidth costs are our biggest expenditure; we currently transfer 250 GB/month, and that usage is growing. Hence, the need to ask for your help.
evolt.org is currently able to take donations online using PayPal, or bysnail mail if you prefer. You can donate via PayPal in US dollars no matter what your home currency.

You can cancel your subscription at any time using your PayPal account. Ifyou don't have a PayPal account, it's fast and easy to sign up during the registration process.

Google Ads in the Browser Archive
We have begun running Google AdSense ads within the Browser Archive.
If you'd like, you can now advertise exclusively on evolt.org! You can use this link to sign up for a Google AdWords account and target ads to browsers.evolt.org.
Placing an ad on evolt.org benefits both you (if you're trying to reach a high-traffic, high-quality audience of web designers, developers, hobbyists and professionals) and evolt.org too, because site-targeted ads generate more revenue for the care, feeding and hosting of evolt.org.
If you see any ads appear which are inappropriate, or which appear to interfere with your access to the Browser Archive, please let us know as soon as possible.
Technical donationsAt the moment we really need browser mirrors hosted on sites which can do the following:
- can host at least ~ 6 gigabytes of data
- can bitshift at least ~ 50-100 gigabytes per month of traffic
- can use rsync to cope with:
- automatic incremental one-way at-most-daily synchronisation of the Archive
- symbolic links within the Archive
We welcome many types of contributions, and recognise that not all of themwill be tangible. We value the evolt.org community members who donate their time, skills, opinions and expertise to our various list servers, articles, and administration and management demands. While evolt.org's financial needs are great, there is no evolt without those contributions.
