Open in Wayback Machine
How many times have you opened a dead link before? Do you know about the Wayback Machine, amazing web service from guys at archive.org which silently spiders the Web and periodically remembers how pages looked like before?
This extension is a shorthand for easy access of features of Wayback Machine.
- Button in toolbar, which opens currently opened page in Wayback Machine. If you already opened the dead link, just one click and you probably will get the content you wanted after all.
- Context menu item, which opens given URL link in the web page in Wayback Machine. If you already know or see that the link is dead (Wikipedia is pretty anal in this case), you can open this link straight in the archive.org UI for searching the past.
