When you search from the front page or the toolbar of the Wayback, we take you to the latest capture of a site by default.  If that site had a redirect on it when we crawled it, we’ll automatically redirect you to the new site as well (we’re replaying the behavior of the site as it was when we archived it).  You can easily get around this.  From the front page, enter the URL of the site you want to visit and press the “Show All” button.  That will take you to a page that lists all of the captures for the URL over time.  To see the site as it was, just select a date from before the site started redirecting!
