Subject description: addon for Firefox by Internet Archive Also available for Chrome
 

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/wayback-machine-162148/

The HTTP 404, 404 Not Found and 404 error message is a Hypertext Transfer Protocol standard response code, in computer network communications, to indicate that the client was able to communicate with a given server, but the server could not find what was requested. Wikipedia.

An ever growing number of websites go offline for x reason, lack of money, lack of interest, so when you search for content, some websites show 404 Not Found Error, and as time passes, such 404 Not Found Error occurs more often than just a few years ago. It is aggravating, because some content are still useful.

This addon comes to the rescue, showing the more recent Web archive available for a website, thanks to Internet Archive, all websites being saved with all their links.

There is a series of similar addons for Firefox, each competing for your interest, but only Wayback Machine is from Internet Archive.

A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means that the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn't be found on their server.

I don't understand the need for an app/addon for the wayback machine.
I must be in the stone age Smile

Any browser can do the wayback machine, no addons required.

https://betanews.com/2019/10/18/wayback-machine-2019/

According to the Internet Archive, the average webpage lasts just three months before being altered or deleted. To prevent this data being lost for good, the team’s Wayback Machine saves a copy of web pages across time, allowing visitors to see how a site has looked at various points in its history.

I’ve found the Wayback Machine to be an invaluable tool on numerous occasions, but it’s now getting even better.

You can use a bookmarklet to do the same thing.

No reason to assume the addon is untrustworthy, but ...
