A Better Wayback Machine
The Internet Archive Wayback Machine, an archive of historical web pages dating back to 1996, has been greatly improved. The index is now updated every hour, there is a new front page, a new Availability API, a 404 handler that webmasters can use, and many other improvements. I think the most important new feature is the ability to instantly save a page and receive a permanent URL for use in citations.

Karen Coyle has written up instructions on how to use the Save Page feature of the Wayback Machine.
