View older versions of the current webpage
WayBack Chrome allows you to view older versions of current websites. To use the app, simply click on the icon while visiting a site and select a date.
- (2017-08-05) Jonathan Howell: Works perfectly and exactly the way I'd want it to. Preferred to the other Wayback extensions.
- (2017-05-19) Stephen Wicklund: Good, but this one is better: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/go-back-in-time/hgdahcpipmgehmaaankiglanlgljlakj (it lets you access from Google cache, bing cache, etc. in addition to wayback)
- (2016-10-21) Andrius Žilėnas: it is expected to launch web.archive.org if page not exist, but it doesn't
- (2016-09-01) Job van der Zwan: This is great, but nowadays many links to broken pages redirect to a different page before I can click this button (example: jsperf). If I could right click + "open on Archive.org" on any link the add-on would be perfect! :)
- (2016-07-03) Amir Emami: Awesome tool for bloggers. Really nice one.
- (2015-10-20) Robert Siska: Nice and simple. Thanks!
- (2015-08-06) Mattias Andersson: Thankfully, this extension *does* now go to the *page-specific* Wayback entry, not just the entry for the domain. Yay!
- (2015-05-14) Jonathan Bowen: Great for finding archived versions of web pages that no longer exist.
- (2015-01-12) Tom Haczewski: The new update is perfect. You can easily get to the Wayback Machine's entry for any URL you're on so quickly. Brilliant!
- (2014-08-18) Rami Markus Maunula: Crops to top level of site, making it sort of useless to me.
- (2013-10-10) Yuri Malyshev: Wow!!! Works like a time machine in a way. You can go back and see what it looked like. Thank you!
- (2013-05-16) Erika Cristina Honda: Works like a charm!Good job and thank you!
- (2017-09-11, v:1.9) firefox?
i like how this opens http://web.archive.org/web/*/<URL> Do you have a Firefox version? if not please create.
- (2016-03-24, v:1.9) David McClelland: Great button!
This works better than any other WayBack Machine extension. My suggestion is that you see if it can be added to the "right click" (context) menu for URLs. This would be helpful in cases where the URL is dead so the domain just forwards you back to a landing page and you lose the URL in the address bar.
