How To View Recent Web Pages Offline


If you’re running Chrome or Firefox then getting back to a recent webpage while offline is easy.You might have suffered many times when you have no Internet, yet you still need to see a webpage that you were looking at just a moment earlier. Browsers like Google Chrome & Firefox save a cached copy of your recently browsed web pages, and so we use this feature to view the recently closed web pages without internet connection. Both browsers Chrome and Firefox have the ability to display content in their respective caches—i.e, temporarily saved web page data—instead of the live version of the site. This can be imperfect since the page can change while you’re offline, rendering the saved version is inaccurate, and the browser cache only contains a limited amount of your recent browsing history. Also it doesn’t work on the sites that provide live feeds of content, such as Facebook or Netflix. Nevertheless, if you need information from a news item or another site you were just viewing, try one of these solutions.


To View Offline Web Pages in Mozilla Firefox :

By default Chrome can show some webpages while you’re still offline, but with this setting enabled the feature is far more robust. Chrome’s method to display stale web pages (not live) is currently experimental.

1.For offline mode in Chrome type ‘chrome://flags/#show-saved-copy’ (Without Quotes) in the URL bar. Then select Enable: Primary from the drop-down menu under the Enable Show Saved Copy Button heading.
2.Once it’s done, relaunch your browser for the feature to take effect.
3.To test viewing a cached page, make your PC offline and open a webpage from your recent browsing history. You should see Chrome’s typical offline error message—except this error message, you’ll also see a Show saved copy button as pictured above. click the button and voila! you’ll see the version of the webpage as it was when you were last online.

To View Offline Web Pages in Mozilla Firefox :

1.To view pages from your cache click on the menu “hamburger” icon in the upper right corner.
2.Then select Developer, then Work Offline. Now Firefox will display the page you want as long as it’s in the browser’s cache.
