    This might have been mentioned, but I will share it anyway.

    I use google primarily for researching. I used to use the cached link all the time because it was both faster to load and it hi-lighted the search terms for me.

    Some time ago the format changed, and now the cached linkes are on the right flyout menu. I hate this feature, so I stopped using cached results. Recently I needed to view some pages that were no longer in existence but some were cached. I found a way to get things back the way I like them in Chromium. Other browsers might not have the same issue, but I believe firefox does.

    Anyway, here is how you do it. (I found this, not claiming it btw)

    If it does not exist, create the file
    in this directory (at least for me it was)
    C:\Users\<your user name goes here>\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets

    and add this to the file

    .vshid /* Cached links */
        { display: block !important; }
    Restart the browser and you should see the cached links at the bottom of each result.
