    Interestingly, right-click -> Open in new tab is still b0rked but right-click -> Open in incognito window works as expected :S – Danny Beckett Jul 3 '13 at 21:48
  • I'd say Archive.org is redirecting back here when it hits a 404, but no Location header is sent back, and there is no <meta http-equiv="refresh"> on the page. Also, it's only SO that's affected: jsfiddle.net/rzYxt/show – Danny Beckett Jul 3 '13 at 21:51
  • @DannyBeckett It's sending a 302 with a Location header, only sometimes though. – Nick Craver Jul 3 '13 at 23:08
