How to restore cached page from Chrome cache?

1. Open Chrome and go to chrome://cache/

2. Click on the file you want to restore. It should open a page with encrypted cached version of the page – numbers and letters.

3. Open JavaScript console (View -> Developer -> JavaScript console)

4. Copy and paste the code below in JS console and press enter on keyboard:

(function() {
    var preTags = document.getElementsByTagName('pre');
    var preWithHeaderInfo = preTags[0];
    var preWithContent = preTags[2];

    var lines = preWithContent.textContent.split('\n');
 
    // get data about the formatting (changes between different versions of chrome)
    var rgx = /^(0{8}:\s+)([0-9a-f]{2}\s+)[0-9a-f]{2}/m;
    var match = rgx.exec(lines[0]);
 
    var text = '';
    for (var i = 0; i < lines.length; i++) {
        var line = lines[i];
        var firstIndex = match[1].length; // first index of the chars to match (e.g. where a '84' would start)
        var indexJump = match[2].length; // how much space is between each set of numbers
        var totalCharsPerLine = 16;
        index = firstIndex;
        for (var j = 0; j < totalCharsPerLine; j++) {
            var hexValAsStr = line.substr(index, 2);
            if (hexValAsStr == '  ') {
                // no more chars
                break;
            }

            var asciiVal = parseInt(hexValAsStr, 16);
            text += String.fromCharCode(asciiVal);

            index += indexJump;
        }
    }

    var headerText = preWithHeaderInfo.textContent;
    var elToInsertBefore = document.body.childNodes[0];
    var insertedDiv = document.createElement("div");
    document.body.insertBefore(insertedDiv, elToInsertBefore);

    // find the filename
    var nodes = [document.body];
    var filepath = '';
    while (true) {
        var node = nodes.pop();
        if (node.hasChildNodes()) {
            var children = node.childNodes;
            for (var i = children.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
                nodes.push(children[i]);
            }
        }

        if (node.nodeType === Node.TEXT_NODE && /\S/.test(node.nodeValue)) {
            // 1st depth-first text node (with non-whitespace chars) found
            filepath = node.nodeValue;
            break;
        }
    }

    insertedDiv.appendChild(document.createElement('hr'));

5. If you don’t see any errors, scroll to top of page and you should see a link “Left click to download”

6. Download file. You should now have decrypted version of your page in .gz file

7. Use http://online.b1.org/online or any other tool that can open a .gz file to view the content.
