One of the most frustrating online experiences for me is trying to track down a web page or tweet that I saw a few days ago. If I’m lucky, I bookmarked the page or favorited the tweet, but most of the time I haven’t, and so I can only sit there and fume. So basically, a startup called Archify is the answer to my prayers. It’s a browser plugin that tracks every website you visit (excluding https pages and websites you visit in Incognito mode), and also allows you to connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts for archiving.

archify is a ground-breaking service created to tackle the information overload crisis. On average, people are spending more than 35 hours per month online, consuming 3,205 pages1.

Studies show that information overload is starting to harm people’s productivity3 because they can’t retrieve all this information efficiently. As Max Kossatz, Archify founder, illustrates, “I know I read something last week, but I can’t remember whether it was on Twitter, Facebook, or WebMD. Was it on my work PC or my iPad or my phone? This is where archify comes in.”
