Web Page Update Date In IE
Would you like to know when a specific Web page was last updated? After all, you don't want to think you're reading current information if the material was last updated in 1997. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can easily determine when a page was updated last. Navigate to the page you want to check and type into the Address Bar

javascript:alert(document.lastModified)

and press Enter. A dialog box will open display the date and time of the last update.

Note that you must enter the line exactly as shown here. You can copy the line from here and paste it into the Address Bar if you like.
