ErrorZilla

ErrorZilla Firefox extension: What a great plugin.

Firefox extension ErrorZilla turns Firefox’s less-than-useful default “Server not found” page into a much more practical and useful tool.

Rather than the lone “Try again” button, ErrorZilla adds buttons to the error page that allow you to do things like view the Google Cache of the page, find a snapshot of the page from the Wayback Machine, ping the site, or see who owns the site with a WhoIs lookup (assuming, of course, any of this information exists for the site).
