Wayback Machine

Does the idea of a “digital time capsule” interest you? Even if it doesn’t, the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine has the potential to be very useful to you as an Internet user.

The Wayback allows you to view archived versions of web pages across time, which can be especially useful if you are greeted by a broken web link. According to the Wayback’s stats it boasts billions of web pages from 1996 to a few months ago.

Next time you want to visit a specific web site and the address you have no longer works, go take a surf on the Wayback!
