Website watcher is a great, although high priced, program. I highly recommend it. THANK YOU DC!

Update Scanner AddOn for Firefox, perhaps?

BTW: "Internet Owl" had a lot of potential for this purpose but unfortunately seems to have 'died on the vine' as it appears to no longer be supported. Shame, too.

1. Check4Change (C4C) - a simple Mozilla FireFox extension that allows you to periodically check a web-page for updates.

2. ChangeDetection - an online page change monitoring and notification services.

You can use Newzie, which is free and still actively updated. Its not as good as Website Watcher, but will do the job well.

I second ChangeDetection as it checks continually via the web and not only when I got my pc running with software on it.

Hey: thanks for that... I've been trying Newzie ever since I read App's post referring to it as the best reader... obviously not investigating deeply enough!
