Bottom Line: This AppleScript will bring up the Google Cache for a page more reliably than most bookmarklets.
One of my favorite quotes to both console potential targets of internet infamy and to caution those that aren’t concerned with their online privacy:
The internet has a short attention span, but a really long memory.
For those that didn’t know, there are a few sites that essentially accumulate “snapshots” of the internet at various times, so that people can always have a place to go back and find “that one website” — even years after it’s been taken down. It’s really helpful when you go back to find that article you really liked, posted by some humble DIYer years ago, who has since let his or her website fall apart or failed to pay their webhost fees.
Just like the bookmarklet, I put it into QuickSilver to be able to call it lickety-split with a keystroke or two. Enjoy!
