web.archive.org unofficial WaybackMachine extension

With a click of a mouse, the extension uses web.archive.org's internet archiving Wayback Machine to view the current website you're on in the year and month you specify. If the website you're viewing wasn't crawled by the machine at the specified month or year, it takes you to the nearest crawled version and opens it in a new tab.

It can only go to 2006, I want it to go back to more early times like 2021.

Great extension. You can modify it by editing popup.html and changing the form to include the latest years and as far back as you want. You can also modify line 10 in the popup.js to use "currentURL" instead of trimURL(currentURL) so that it doesn't trim your URL to the domain. But he did this because obscure URLs of a site might not be in the WayBackMachine. So this gives you the ability to at least see if something is available before digging deeper.
