HTTP Archive joins with Internet Archive

It was announced today that HTTP Archive has become part of Internet Archive.

The Internet Archive provides an archive of web site content through the Wayback Machine, but we do not capture data about the performance of web sites.  Steve Souders’s HTTP Archive started capturing and archiving this sort of data in October 2010 and has expanded the number of sites covered to 18,000 with the help of Pat Meenan and WebPagetest.

Steve Souders will continue to run the HTTP Archive project, and we hope to expand its reach to 1 million sites.  To this end, the Internet Archive is accepting donations for the HTTP Archive project to support the growth of the infrastructure necessary to increase coverage.  The following companies have already agreed to support the project: Google, Mozilla, New Relic, O’Reilly Media, Etsy, Strangeloop, and dynaTrace Software. Coders are also invited to participate in the open source project.

Internet Archive is excited about archiving another aspect of the web for both present day and future researchers.
