Get to Overwhelmed Web Pages with Coral Cache
Facebook may have decided that you shouldn’t see the news, but we think you deserve to be in the know with Lifehacker Australia’s content.

You’ve just read about a cool new web app or informative article on Digg, Slashdot, or some other link-heavy site, so you hit the link and … minutes later, you’re still hitting refresh and seeing 404 errors. Just before you give up, try loading the site in Coral Cache, a free service that uses a distributed server network to keep content from being overwhelmed—i.e. “Slashdotted” or, as is sometimes the case, suffering from the “Lifehacker effect.” No software or bookmarklet necessary, just add “.nyud.net” to the end of any URL. You may get a slower load and occasional formatting wonkiness, but it’s often more up-to-date than the Google Cache version, and a helpful work-around.
