Wayback Machine App
The Internet Archive presents The Official Wayback Machine Extension. With the power of the Wayback Machine, you can go back in time to see how a website has changed and evolved through the history of the Web!
Functions include seeing the oldest or newest version of a website, or a calendar of every past archive. There's also the "Site Map" feature that will draw a pie graph of the past history of pages of a site.
The toolbar button shows you how many snapshots of the website you're visiting are in the Wayback Machine, and the date of the latest snapshot in the popup window.
You can right-click, then "Open in Wayback Machine" in the context menu. Try it while over a link.
Whenever you encounter a "dead link" (a.k.a 404 Not Found) page, this extension will automatically provide a link to a saved version in the Wayback Machine.
Most features work without requiring an account, but if you do create an account, you'll be able to archive any website easily with just a single tap of a button.
Convenient 3rd-party functions for searching for Related Tweets, Alexa, and Whois for looking up domain names, as well as sharing links on social media websites.

This extension keeps popping up a window in front of webpages about looking up the Archive version of an unavailable page...but it frequently does it on pages which are still available live!
It's a Safari extension to access archive.org 4/5
As the blurb explains nothing, here’s what this does:
This Wayback Machine app installs a Safari extension that gives you a little button with several more options, like directly see the most recent version archived, the first version archived, or to tell them to take a snapshot of that page right now.
The disadvantage is that it wants an archive.org login, which 1Password informs me I made for some reason 10 years ago, so I guess that worked out well in my case.
The UI response could use a bit more snappiness, but once you click a button it seems to be doing its stuff in the background and will eventually open the page for you.
What it is. 5/5

Somebody once figured out that people and companies might publish claims on the internet (for example specific claims, warrantees, etc.) in their advertisments, and later, after they got caught lying, change their ads and pretend they never made those claims.
The Wayback Machine scours the internet and takes periodic snapshots of websites which are stored in a massive database.
That way, you can 'Go Back In Time' and see what claims were made by people and companies on their webpages even if those claims are later deleted.
The Internet is Eternal.
