Major expansion of Wayback Machine’s archive of the historical internet

The Next Web reports that the Internet Archive has vastly increased its historical database of the web:

The Internet Archive has updated its Wayback Machine with a significant bump in coverage: the service has gone from 150,000,000,000 URLs to having 240,000,000,000 URLs, a total of about 5 petabytes of data. More specifically, the Wayback Machine now covers the Web from late 1996 to December 9, 2012.
