Wayback Machine gets an update

The Internet Archive have just brought online a beta version of  new Wayback Machine. The Wayback Machine is how you access archived websites that the IA have been tracking.  Some of the archived sites go back over 12 years. Do you want to see what the USPS website looked like 5 years ago vs 10 years ago? (It's an eyesore, but it's rather interesting.)

The beta site is based on improved search engine and it has a number of interface improvements. but the content is the same.  The home page has changed so there's now 2 buttons below the search bar. The results page also is a lot spiffier. Note the calendar. Click on a year in the taskbar and you'll see a graphic rep of the days a site was archived. It's big improvement over the old lists.

All in all, this is rather cool.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
