Resurrect Pages is a Firefox extension that shows a dead/broken page by searching it in search engine's cache.
Dead pages, broken links, the scourge of the internet. Powerhouse sites like Slashdot and Digg can bring a server to its knees.
What do we do when a page is dead but we still want to see it? Call in the clerics, and perform a resurrection ceremony!
Or, the easier route, use this extension.
- Searches through five big page cache/mirrors:
.The Internet Archive
Of course, not every page can be in every cache. When a page is unavailable, you'll generally see that site's error page. Hit back and try another one!
.In the context (right-click) menu for the current page, and for all links.
.In the toolbar, just customize it to drag the button in.
.With the keyboard: press Ctrl-Shift-U
