Showing when a page last updated

A handy little trick I often use to check on the last time a web page was last updated (handy when having to reference the site it check it’s activity)


When using Chrome however, you need to manually type this in because when you copy and paste this in, Chrome will remove the javascript: section and therefore you’ll just run a needless Google search on “alert(document.lastModified)”

It even works in Android (Chrome for Android does not remove the JavaScript: entry either)


Give it a try and crack open a newly brewed Budweiser to celebrate (and don’t forget to check the born date on those bad boys just for consistency)
