Looks pretty slick, but it still has the search-form glitch I run into every single time:

Whenever I want to use it, I wind up pasting a URL that I copied from somewhere else into the URL input at top. My URL invariably starts 'http://, but the 'http:// that's prepopulated in the form as rendered doesn't go away. So I wind up doing a search on 'http://http://whatever..., which of course turns up nothing.

It may be some odd browser dependency, but I've seen it at least in several versions of Firefox...

It would be great if there was a combo of internet archive wayback machine + google fastflip-type browsing http://fastflip.googlelabs.com/

a modern look is nice, but it doesn't really add any functionality that was missing. how long will it take for them to offer full-text search? could someone else provide it?

Nice! Was long overdue for an update - wasn't a fan of the old site, and hated the inconsistencies in product names / branding. Thanks for sharing.
