IDEA: something like website-watcher ..
« on: April 30, 2005, 06:37:06 AM »
an app that downloads specified websites (maybe multiple instances for multiple websites) and checks after some time whether the site has changed or not ...
freewarewiki.de .. though it's not a wiki ...

i've actually thought about doing this..
it would be easy to make a very minimal little tray tool that watched a certain page for changes..
the only question is whether there is really a need for such a program given the other web page change monitoring tools.. i wonder if the free ones listed in our wsw review do this already..

A service like ChangeDetection.com is better than this app.

1) You are notified vai email.
2) You don't need to keep a program running (even if in the background)
3) Someone else is worrying about it.

Cheers!
