Smart, it works in any modern html5 capable browser:

Besides the cache empty instructions, these keyboard shortcut to get to the settings in various browsers are also really helpful:
- Control+Shift+Delete on a PC, or
- Shift+Command+Delete on a Mac.

Saving a web page for posterity is really easy: just prepend http://liveweb.archive.org/ in front of the URL in your browser, then open the page.
The Wayback Machine (Internet Aarchive) wil instantly archive it.
One thing that the ineffable Jason Scott just pointed out to me on Twitter:
if you give the url of the page to http://liveweb.archive.org and wait five minutes, it will archive that page. How about that?
Also you can enter
http://liveweb.archive.org/http://www.website.com/pageto 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.

Last week, I viewed to webinars. A smaller one Geek Fest – Automating the ForgeRock Platform Installation about Ansible installation of Unix machines, and the first 70% of the last day ofCodeRage 9 | Free Development Event by Embarcadero.
Both had a bad experience because of GoToWebinar has a really bad user experience.
- When a GoToWebinar connection terminates, the GoToWebinar client closes. You loose everything in the Q&A log. You need to hope someone else saved the Q&A log so you can see the public questions, but the private comments you made are gone.
- It is impossible to install the Windows client when you are behind a McAfee Web Gateway that filters downloads and HTTPS traffic. After trying for about 15 minutes, we gave up and reverted back to a Mac over another connection. It meant we could not use the conference room and had to cram many people behind a small MacBook screen.
- The Mac OS X client does not allow you to resise the Q&A log, so even on a 4k display, you can see like 10 lines of Q&A.
- When there are many attendees, the refresh rate slows down from sub second to once per 5-10 seconds, this is really bad when watching demos of software: a big aim of webinars.
When terminating, the only thing GoToWebinar allows you to do is give feed back (too bad they don’t allow for detailed feed back). So I gave it 0 out of 5 stars.
PS: I could save the below Q&A logs. If you have other logs, please let me know so I can publish them. I’m especially interested in Have You Embraced Your Inner Software Plumber Yet? by David Schwartz – The Tool Wiz
