16 notable Internet 404 error pages

Internet 404 error pages are the Easter eggs of the Web. They’re hidden from view and can be fun to find.
That’s because website designers have put some thought into their 404 pages. They figure that if web surfers are surprised to find the content they’re looking for is gone, at least they should get a pleasant surprise as well.
Web content companies in particular tend to make entertaining 404 pages.
What follows are 16 Internet error pages I’ve collected since my last post on the subject.

App Annie shows a trio of hovering cats.
