With some Web sites out there, if you wanted to know when it was updated, you would subscribe to the RSS feed they put out, right? Well, with some Web sites out there, they still have no RSS or any other syndication method to be seen. You need something that watches the Web site in question for changes, and lets you know about it.
That is where Check4Change comes into the picture. Check4Change does exactly what the name says, it checks for changes on a Web site. Here is what the developer has to say about it.
Check4Change (aka C4C) is a simple extension that allows you to periodically check a web-page for updates.
Have you ever found yourself pressing the reload button frantically, waiting for something in the web page to change?
Well reload no further! with C4C you’ll just mark the relevant text, set a time interval (e.g every 1 minute), and you’re done!
Using this Firefox extension could not be easier. You select the text you want monitored for updates then right-click on the Check4Change context menu, select the time interval. The tab icon will indicate this page is being monitored by changing to C4C. That is it.
This Firefox extension is for versions 1.5 and up of the browser. To pick up your copy all you need to do is download it via the Mozilla Add-ons Web site.
