Dead links can be a nightmare, especially with the age of the internet ever increasing, the possibility of websites disappearing, moving, expiring.

Wayback Machine

You've probably heard of it, the wayback machine keeps local copies of the majority of websites available today. However you can now get addons for your browser from them that can detect dead links as you see them, and offer up a past version where the website did exist.


You can get the addon from the following locations:

Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/wayback-machine/fpnmgdkabkmnadcjpehmlllkndpkmiak
Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/wayback-machine_new/
Bookmark for other browsers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Using_the_Wayback_Machine#JavaScript_bookmarklet
