Wayback Machine Adds Changes Feature

wayback machine benefits

You probably are already familiar with Wayback Machine and how it can be useful to see what other sites looked like back in the day and how they evolved.

Previously we published a quick tutorial on how to use Wayback machine to submit your website in case you need to reference your old site. Usually, it’s a good idea to submit your site to Wayback Machine before starting any development on a website. This way if you need to grab copy or a photo from the old site or simply use it for reference or before or after comparison, you’ll have it saved.

But now Wayback Machine added a new feature that allows comparison of content changes done on a specific website over time. After you put in the URL and click the “Changes” button at the top, you’ll see a calendar. You can then click two different dates to see the difference.
