Wayback 17+

easy internet archive access

Claus Wolf

    • Free



The Internet Archive offers access to > 591 billion archived web pages and with Wayback, you have an easy and convenient way to interact with this valuable resource.

Whether you want to see what your favorite website looked like 5 years ago, or you are doing research and want to ensure that a specific page gets added to the archive right now, this extension is right for you.

We developed the extension for convenient access and to stay with our vision of open and transparent functionality. To use this extension you do NOT need an account, you do NOT need to give up your privacy, but you DO get full control.

When you open the popover you'll see when a website was last archived, plus get access to the key features such as "Save Current Page", "Show Page History" or "Open Oldest Snapshot".

If you'd like you can setup a keyboard shortcut to quickly access the Page History, or if you prefer inject a small button to the bottom left of the current page, to take you there.

You can right click on a link or anywhere in the page and select from one of up to three context menus to help you interact with the website. You'll find a fully featured, privacy conscious experience.

What’s New

Version 2022.1

This version brings various enhancements and bug fixes. Additionally, you can now set a value for how many "requests" you would like to boost and it is possible to save the current page in a new tab.

Boosting a request means that Wayback will query the number of times a page has been saved (and when) immediately as the page loads and show a little red badge. This speeds your work with Wayback.

Saving the current page in a new tab will make the request to the Internet Archive in a new tab, rather than take over the current tab. This lets you continue reading, while the request completes.
