Archive.is takes a ‘snapshot’ of a webpage that will always be online even if the original page disappears.
There are several good reasons to take a ‘snapshot’ of a page which could change soon: records of price lists, job offers, real estate listings, recipes, photos, government pages, portfolios, etc.
Archive.is is a time capsule for web pages. It saves a text and a graphical copy of a web page and provides a short and reliable link to an unalterable record of any web page.
In addition to a web page being stored online, there is a downloadable zip version available for offline storage.
There is a searchable archive to look up previous archived pages by URL, if it’s been archived more than once, all archives are displayed as clickable thumbnails.
The site is ad free and offers Chrome and Edge extensions.
- Archiving a page can be slow at times;
- Each webpage saved can’t be bigger than 50 MB each;
- Saved pages have no active elements or scripts for safety;
- Some scripts can interfere with the whole page being saved.
If you need a snapshot of a web page for future use or reference, give archive.is a try.
