The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, the wonderful research tool that captures earlier versions of web sites from as far back as 1996, has just released a new version in beta, with a simpler basic search page, faster navigation, and a cool "show all" feature for showing the dates and times that particular site was crawled (when a snapshot was taken) in each year. Internet expert Gary Price walks you through the new version in a recent article from Information Today. The beta has its own url: http:www.waybackmachine.org, where you can try it out and let them know what you think. The original "classic" Wayback Machine is still available at http://www.archive.org.
