New and Improved Wayback Machine

If you are looking for what a Web site used to look like, the Wayback Machine from the Internet Archive is an excellent starting point.  They have released a beta of a new version of this useful tool.  The most notable feature is that they get rid of the large calendar you view after your search.  Instead, it defaults to a view of the site you’re searching for, and you can then select from a small timeline at the top of the screen for a different date.
