If you haven't closed the browser since, you may be able to find the typed text.. also try returning to previous pages, it's possible you accidentally typed in a key combination code to advance, return or change pages and the message may still be there... Check the history for the page you were typing in..
Your chances of finding the message may depend on the browser you are using.
Or maybe one of these applications can help you see the browser caché

LOL... Welll... I was to late to help with the article recovery, but not for the Babylon intrussion... The Babylon start page must be a small time browser hijacker... to remove it just run HijackThis and check to delete any line(s) making reference to Babylon or instal a spyware program.. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is very effective with such bugs...

Also apply this little registry edition to make sure your default search engine stays put.
http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/software-q/57676-lock-i...
Copy both parts of the text in the code boxes posted by Vishal Gupta and paste them to a .txt file (right mouse click in empty spacer of the desktop and select 'text document') erase the second line that says: "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" and save the file as "lock_homepage.reg"... close the file, and with a right mouse click, select combine... that will add a registry edition to set your google homepage and add a user policy to lock your homepage.

If the problem persists, add the Babylon page to Control \ Panel \ Internet Options \ Security \ Restricted Sites \ Add the Babylon URL \ Close \ and Accept.

I haven't heard of a homepage hijack for a while, Inernet Explorer 6 was prone to such hijackings so if you're still using it, update to IE8 or keep IE6 and install Firefox 8 both are more secure browsers and hijacker foolproof.
