Archify Is A Tool You Might Actually Want Tracking Everything You Do Online

Sometimes people actually wish everything they did was tracked online. That may be a hard concept for some to swallow, but surely you’ve encountered an experience where you ran across some piece of online content, but then want to see it again, days later, only to realize that you can’t find it. You can’t remember where you saw it, and you can’t find it with a search. This has actually happened to me more times than I care to admit.

This is an issue that Archify is trying to solve. It’s a browser plug-in aimed at being your archive for the web. It’s pretty simple really.

“Have you ever wondered how you can have all your online content in one single place?” Archify asks in its pitch. “All your Facebook and Twitter updates, your email conversations, the websites you’ve recently seen…every day, you use different devices and different browsers to access your online content. The footprints of your online journey are scattered and lost over time. Wouldn’t it be great to have your own personal archive of things which matter most to you?”

Launched in limited beta earlier this year, Archify is now available to all.

With the tool, you can search your archive from your Gmail account, from the browser plug-in, from archify.com, or even from Google itself, as the plug-in will add archive results to the Google search page.

It even comes with an analytics suite, so you can learn more about your Internet browsing behavior, and see stats like what sites you visit most often, where you spend most of your time, and what time of day/week you’re most active.

    Sounds like the History feature

    Sounds just like cache/cookies/history, but far more in-depth, and apparently stored remotely, as you can access this information from their website. In other words, it adds to the functionality of the record-keeping already done locally by your browser, which is great, but it also introduces massive privacy and security concerns by sending all of that information to a remote third-party. So… no thanks.
