Viewing source code in Safari requires you to enable the “Develop menu” (via: Apple Support Communities)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/13

Maybe this is one of the reasons I hardly use Safari: viewing the source code of a web page requires you to enable the “Develop menu:

  1. Safari menu > Preferences > Advanced.
  2. Check “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. Close Safari’s preferences.
  3. Develop menu > Show Page Source

Thanks John Galt for answering the above.

Instantly save a web-page to the Wayback Machine (Internet Archive:

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/24

Saving a web page for posterity is really easy: just prepend in front of the URL in your browser, then open the page.

The Wayback Machine (Internet Aarchive) wil instantly archive it.

See this great answer by Jeff Atwood quite a while ago:

One thing that the ineffable Jason Scott just pointed out to me on Twitter:

if you give the url of the page to and wait five minutes, it will archive that page. How about that?

Also you can enter to have it happen without visiting the page.

So if you want to ensure that a popular soon-to-be or may-possibly-be deleted question gets archived by the Internet Archive, manually feed them to the URL above.

I suppose for already deleted questions, we could also undelete, wait 5 minutes, let it archive, then re-delete.
