I always liked google’s cached page feature. It serves me well for those times when my searches finally yield that holy grail page I’ve been looking for. Only I go to click on it and the link is dead!
I hadn’t used the cache feature for awhile and couldn’t find it. I thought I’d share that it is still there and how to find it. It used to be that you could hover over the search result and get double (>>) arrows beside it. It’s now in a new spot.
Look at the link in the search result and click the green down arrow on the right. You will see cached option, as well as Similar and Share.
I put in a file at home via logmein and wanted to get it at work faster. Google drive wasn’t syncing yet so I paused the app at home and then resumed. It started scanning files. I did the same at work and got my file right away.
I threw a readme on to my google drive as the system I was working would be in Dos mode to update a bios. I was able to resync my google drive on my modded touchpad tablet and view the file. I wasn’t trying to save paper but glad I did and will use this when possible in the future.
