When I use this plugin I don't get a date. What I see is a large shadow box in the middle of my window belonging archive.org. This box doesn't display the page date. Its in fact basically a view onto archive.org home page.
This add-on does exactly what it says and is simple to use. One thing I would suggest is to make this add-on work through a toobar button instead of the right-click, because it's always a bit tiresome to use the context menu, plus I prefer to keep my context menu clean from add-ons.
The popup shows up quickly. 5 stars seem fair but note it can be larger than 1024px, which can be annoying on small screens.
I’ve been using this addon for about half a year and it came in handy more than a few times.
I totally agree with the will to assert a webpage’s relevance based on how old the information is.
Much credit naturally goes to archive.org but you still came up with a nice idea and made it real.
Feature-wise the addon does what’s expected, can’t think of more to ask. 5 stars because why not.
Many thanks. I also find I use this addon quite a lot to be sure I am looking at the most recent information. If the all the software we use to publish articles to the internet would simply prompt the author to add the article's composition date before uploading, then this addon would not be needed.
I'm just beginning to try it and so far it seems to give a good approximation as to how recent an undated article may be. Congrats for the good work! :)
Thanks a lot for your review. I cannot take credit for the date information as that is done by the archive.org team. I find it really useful at times to know when a webpage began as information that is too old can be of less use sometimes.
