When Was It Updated?

When Was It Updated?

This above tip taken from the

Have you ever been on a web site and wondered when it was last updated?
This information can come in handy for stuff like news sites, stock
sites, and/or any site that has time critical information posted on it.
Anyhow, if you want to find out when a particular page was last updated,
head to the page and type (or copy and paste) the following line into
your address bar:
Head to their site to give it a try:
(Note - your browser must be java-enabled in order to do this little
trick.  That should be 99.99% of you.)
OK, that's all well and good, but unless you're a web designer, chances
are you're not going to remember how to do that a month from now.
So, what can you do? Add it to your favorites.
Now, this is not nearly as easy as it sounds. If you just try adding it
to your favorites, you'll find that it doesn't work, you get the web
page you're visiting instead. So, here's a workaround (this is for
Internet Explorer, BTW):
1. Add a web page to your favorites. It doesn't matter what page it is.
When the "Add to favorites" screen pops up, re-name the page "Last
Update" (no quotes) or something similar.
2. Now, click your Favorites menu and find the favorite you just
added. Right-click it and select Properties from the resulting menu. Not
surprisingly, a properties screen pops up.
3. Finally, put the line below in place of the current URL:
You'll probably get an error message when you change it. Just hit "Yes"
if this pops up.
That should do it. Click the Last Update favorite anytime you're on a
page and want to know when it was last updated.
