I've been looking for a tool that will monitor a website and let me know if there have been changes. Why is this useful? Let's say you want to track a firmware download site for changes. Or a webforum or news site without having to register and use the internal "subscriber" tools.

I am specifically using this to track printer drivers and router firmware for a number of devices.

After a long search, the best solution/utility I found is called WebMon http://www.btinternet.com/~markwell/webmon/

It'S got some useful options to track just certain elements of a page too! Works well, even though over 5 years old.

This is not an ad for the software, just a tip. We all love useful and free utilities :)

Let me know if you have found other utilities worth posting here! :pimp:

FEEDBACK
Use this thread for your comments/feedback on the utility if you try it.

Wasn't there an article about hackers taking control of a printers firmware and causing it to start on fire?

And that has what to do with this?
