Google Cache Search

i've just experienced this little (but very useful) trick.
add this lines to your alias list:

# Search a URL in the Google cache: .cache/URL
cache/1 & $JUMP(http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:1)

when you receive a Error 404, Page not Found from server,
prefix the url in the address bar with .cache/ and get it from google cache.

NOTE: this alias command have to be placed BEFORE the "Default catch-all" command.

that's all,
regards,

You might want to escape the last colon :
cache/1 & $JUMP(http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:1)

This was a very good trick, Thanks!

yes, i've posted it on yahoo group and both ScoJo and Scott have answered, but you don't need to escape ":" if the alias is placed before "default catch-all".

thanks for the appreciation,
