Is there a way to see when a web page was published?

Many times I've been reading reviews of various appliances, which makes for good comparisons with similar products etc.   However, quite often, including computer hardware specs and reviews, there is no date associated with the material, which would be helpful.

Ugh the bane of my existence. Countless times I've left the date published field blank when inserting references into uni assignments. Sometimes you can get lucky if the developer puts the date in the code somewhere, often as a comment within the <head> </head> tags. Otherwise, I second the Wayback Machine.

You could look at the http headers last modified date, but it's not very reliable. I use the "live http headers" plugin in Firefox.
