Google Cache Page Design Change

Google Cache Page Design Change:

Google has change the way it used to show the Google Cached pages many times. Changed the design and also the url http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ for showing Google Cache.

Earlier, when user used to see the Google Cache of any website from Google search page, they were shown the searched term highlighted.


But Google stopped to show highlighted terms on its cached pages and suggested users to use ctr+f to find the searched term.


Now, today, Google has again changed the Cache snapshot view. Now you can view the "full version", "text only version" and "View source" directly from the cache page. But still the highlighted search terms are missing.




Highlight Google Cache Search Term:

To achieve keyword highlighted in the Cached page view, there are two options. Manually or using the Browser Extensions.

Manually, we can add the wanted words to the q parameter, and let's say we search Google India and want to highlight words: Google India. Our original cache url which is not highlighting any term is:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Iu-EGyaLG_QJ:https://www.google.co.in/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=in

But now, we change the URL by adding the terms google india, by replaceing +&cd to +google+india&cd.
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Iu-EGyaLG_QJ:https://www.google.co.in/+google+india&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=in

Simply, just add your searched terms after the + in the url and you will get to see highlighted search terms.

Also, by using following Browser Extensions (no affiliation with the extension, use at your own risk), one can highlight the searched term:
