Step 1: Get the bookmarklet

Picture of Get the bookmarklet
Make a new bookmark and were the url should go enter this code:

javascript:document.location.href='http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:'+document.location.href.replace(/http:\/\//,)

there have been reports of it not working in Firefox thanks to colin353 for making a FF version:

javascript:document.location.href='http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:'+document.location.href.replace("http://","");

name it 404 killer
