In what seems to be yet another useful feature Google has apparently and quietly removed, viewing Google's cached versions of websites appears to now be impossible. Their documentation is predictably obsolete, as a "down arrow" no longer exists in Google's results, and the new three-dot widget pulls up an "About this result" "beta" feature that as far as I know I didn't sign up to be part of.

Is access to Google's caches gone, or is there an undocumented method to access them?

Cache is gone


Click the Cached button in the lower right hand corner of your screenshot.

    That cached button is gone, replaced by a button labeled similar. (June 2021) (edit: some links have cached buttons, some don't) Jun 2 '21 at 23:36

Some sites decide to add the do-not-cache tag to the page. This appears to be common to sites that begin charging for content.
