It's a problem I have all the time. I remember reading something on the web, but I don't remember which site or page it was on. Google brings up way too many hits, so how can I find out where I was reading that particular item?
Technically, this isn't a hard problem to solve. Your browser keeps offline cached versions of all the pages you visit, so why doesn't someone simply write a browser extension that can search them? Such things seem to come and go, but very few manage to impress me.
Here's one that does. It's called World Brain. It currently works only in Chrome but a Firefox version is said to be on the way.
If you have Chrome, head to http://worldbrain.io/download and get it now. Oh, and it also searches any PDF files that you might have downloaded too. It really is quite clever.
