This handy web tool allows you to take a screenshot of any webpage to archive as sort of a time capsule. Even if the page completely disappears, your screenshot will always be online. You can also use it to find websites that are no longer live.
This differs from a regular screenshot because the site saves not only the graphics but the actual text for a more accurate copy. It also generates a handy short link you can use. The site also allows you to search for webpages that have gone missing.
Start by heading to this link: https://archive.is/
You’ll have the option to archive a live page or start searching for a lost page.
If you want to save a currently live page, copy the web address and paste it into the alive URL box. Then click save.
It take a few seconds to generate.
Here’s what the archived page looks like.
The shortened link appears in the address bar.
Click the tabs at the top to switch between a screenshot and an actual copy of the page.
You have the option to share the site or download a ZIP files of the copy.
To search for archived snapshots, type the page into archive search box.
