What is Open in the Archive?
Open in the Archive is an open-source web extension for Firefox that allows you to quickly open links in archive sites like the Wayback Machine or Archive.is. It acts like a proxy, retaining some privacy by not loading a page's 3rd party requests or assets.
This web extension allows you to open links either via the context menu or via the badge next to the address bar in archive sites such as the Wayback Machine (https://web.archive.org/) or https://archive.is/.
"Archived" web pages act somewhat like a proxy because they don't load a page's 3rd party requests or assets (sometimes breaking the page) so some of your privacy is retained.
Open in the Archive may not be safe to use and it requires some risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.
Open in the Archive has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
