WayBack Machine
Easily find copies of missing web pages

WayBack Machine is a free Chrome extension which detects HTTP 404 and other "missing page" codes, checks to see if an archived copy is available at the WayBack machine and offers you a "click here to see the archived version" link.

This system won't always work. If the site detects and handles the error code itself, maybe to give you a custom 404 page, WayBack Machine's extension won't see any problem or offer an alternative.

When you do get a message, it doesn't give you a choice of previous versions. We think you'll just get the most recent available version of that page. However, you can move to another WayBack Machine snapshot by using the regular selector at the top of the screen.

On the plus side, the extension doesn't get in your way, won't take any action unless it detects an error code, and in our tests it's very speedy. We were usually alerted to available copies of a missing page within a couple of a seconds.

A sizeable group of people have reported that the extension doesn't work at all for them, so there may be a conflict with something else. Check it out with the official test page. If it works there, it should work anywhere; if it doesn't, it probably won't work at all.

Verdict:

WayBack Machine is a quick and easy way to access archived copies of missing web pages, assuming it works for you (there might be a bug). Try it and see.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.21

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
