Firefox Test Pilot: New plugin does away with error 404




Error 404 – Page not found. Who does not know, you get a link, but this leads nowhere. The reasons may be diverse, but usually no longer exists the desired page. In many but not all cases, the power does not forget known. So it is quite possible that the link has already been archived in an earlier version. can call you this “old” pages via the Wayback Machine Internet Archive. Mozilla is now on the Test Pilot program a new plugin available that you decrease the work.

If you click a link that no longer exists, you will automatically receive the version of the Internet Archives displayed. If it then gives an old version there. The probability is high, a guarantee does not exist, however. Likewise, the function can not be accepted, if the website has an automatic forwarding or spits out another error. Sounds really quite practical.

The function takes you if you use the Test Pilot Plugin in Firefox and enabled experimental features. Later, the function is to be integrated in normal times Firefox release then probably, if “No more 404s” because as hoped work and actual benefits. Firefox Test Pilot can be found on this page .
