Strength:

• Free
• Fast
• Able to fully archive almost any types of PDF files

Challenge:

• Censorship. The downside with Wayback Machine (WB) is that it often censored archived content. Compare to both ArchiveBox (AB) or Archive Today (AT) which do NOT censor archived legal content.

• Weaker security and weaker privacy than ArchiveBox (AB) at https://archivebox.io
___• Why better is AB better? Because AB software as stronger security & stronger privacy. Why? Because AB code is open source. This means that it is available for both public review & contributions. Compare to AT and WB which have weaker security & weaker privacy. As they are not open source.

Notes:

• Archive Today (AT)
___• https://archive.today
___• https://twitter.com/archiveis
___• https://blog.archive.today

• ArchiveBox (AB)
___• Even better than both AT and WB is AB at https://archivebox.io
___• Why better? Because AB software as stronger security & stronger privacy. Why? Because AB code is open source. This means that it is available for both public review & contributions. Compare to AT and WB which have weaker security & weaker privacy. As they are not open source.

Not a bad extension, but it sometimes redirects even when a URL is working fine. Until this is fixed, I'm going to use Resurrect Pages instead, and you should too.

It saves many websites after their creator stopped it. Very easy to use and you can save any website.
