Many of us who like to do research and have saved good research sites over time see many of those sites no longer in existance.

Recently, I downloaded a free app called "Wayback Machine" which (in my case) I use from my Firefox browser.
It passes all security tests and the app itself lies dormant in your system until you try to pull up a long lost site.
Once it detects the site is not there, it automatically puts up a screen asking if you wish for "Wayback Machine" to locate the archived site for you?

I have used this app several times now, and it has worked every time.

Just do a "bing" search, type in "wayback machine", and it will find the app for you...

I have used this wayback machine before. It isn't perfect, but it is fun to bring up stuff from 10 years ago from websites long gone.
