According to the bottom of that site, it seems the easiest way to view websites without giving them your IP is:

"Edit the heck out" of google URLs like this:


webcache.googleusercontent.com / search ? q = cache : q73OkFyPlu4J : navigators.com / isp.html



This is so that you can see the text version of the cached site so never giving your IP. Well it has to be typed out manually and is a little tedius, and since this article was written in 2013, does anyone know of faster ways now?

(Using iPad if it matters)

  • If by "Edit the heck out" you mean "Append &strip=1 to the end of the cached page URL", then this is indeed the way to go. – WhiteWinterWolf Apr 18 '15 at 18:19
  • It doesn't work any more. He says " Adding &strip=1 onto the end of a hijacked cached link does not work - you end up viewing a full version of the cached page with all of its embedded graphics, etc being downloaded by you directly from the target website" :/ so you have to manually edit things like / to %2F – nor rrr Apr 18 '15 at 18:37
  • How is it related to IT security? – Deer Hunter Apr 18 '15 at 18:43

    I don't know the use-case here, but one use-case is passive information gathering, ie. getting information from the Google cache and the Wayback Machine from a website without contacting the original website. And indeed due to a simple usability issue it does not appear easy to use Google cache in a really stealthy way. – WhiteWinterWolf Apr 18 '15 at 18:58
  • @Deer Hunter, I guess for the purpose of protecting your IP address ? :) – nor rrr Apr 18 '15 at 19:00
