Web Monitor 3.02 is now available. (2006/8/23)
The World Wide Web is a single direction information source. Real time stock prices, online bidding systems, forums, discussion boards, daily news services, etc need to be checked regularly for updates. It is a very time-consuming process that can waste a lot of time. To solve this problem, Compressweb has developed Web Monitor. Web Monitor is a tool that can automatically monitor your favorite data from numerous web sites simultaneously. For Web Masters it has the additional benefit of checking that your web-server is working and can notify when site content is modified; perhaps due to a hackera€?s attack.
Web Monitor is a system for automatically monitoring web pages. It allows the user to check for changes on web pages periodically or according to a user defined schedule. Areas on a web page can be selected for monitoring according to various change criteria. When a change event occurs various notification actions can be enabled. Such actions include playing a sound file, sending an email or SMS message and even running another program. When changes to a currently monitored web page occur Web Monitor will save the new pages to your computer and highlight the changes between the old and new pages. It is possible to configure the how much history data is stored. Web Monitor is a simple to use tool and will save you much time that is otherwise needlessly spent navigating to different web sites checking for updates.
