    "Brilliant. Still gets good reviews after 7 years."

    October 01, 2010   |   By crisoco

    Version: WebMon 1.0.1

    Pros

    Small footprint of 532kb.
    The most customisable alert system I have seen.
    Lists can be sorted alphabetically.
    Alerts remain on screen for 8 seconds or permanently until clicked and closed.
    The usual email options.
    Wide range of reference settings.

    Cons

    Support and development not available any longer.

    Summary

    I have tried nearly all the well known add-ons for Firefox and several stand alone programs but this knocks the socks off the competition and considering it is no longer supported or developed it is really amazing.
    It has a multitude of preferences ??? Update Alerts, Error Alerts, Update Logging, Connections, Proxy Server, Visual Settings, Web Browser, Default Interval, Automation, Miscellaneous.
    The Update Alerts can display a popup or not and you can even have it show at various positions on the desktop. The alert can be via popup for 8 seconds or permanently show until right clicked and closed. Single left click will open the alert URL and close the popup. Even an icon in the desktop notification area of Windows XP will show if an alert has been found and if that is not enough you can even run a command, send an email alert or play a sound alert. Brilliant!
    URL?s can be automatically sorted alphabetically or by status or moved manually using the < or > keys.
    There are also a host of automation and miscellaneous settings to customise it to suit your requirements.
    I particularly like how the page content to be checked uses search starting and ending words within the html page of the web site, or the page can be just left to find any update. Interval check times can be specified.

    "Easy to use and it works"

    February 17, 2007   |   By Zoleeca

    Version: WebMon 1.0.1

    Pros

    It says that pages are updated when they arent because you didnt specify the content to check exactly. Lots of webpages uses sessions to identify the visitor, and every time you access the page it is changed and displayed in the page's source (php genereated html source). This is why it says the page is updated.

    If you correctly configure it works nicely, but it cant check password protected pages - unless you use IE.

    Cons

    Sometimes you need to use your HTML knowledge - if you have.

    "Crashes but otherwise not bad"

    January 14, 2007   |   By omnipotent32

    Version: WebMon 1.0.1

    Pros

    Allows the ability to check on a per minute basis. Fairly intuitive to use.

    Cons

    This program has crashed quite regularly. Usually when I leave my computer alone for awhile I come back with it using 100% of my resources and freezing. I would also like it if there was a built in change tracker (so I know what changed) and possibly an email message that can be sent to let me know something has changed.

    "Works, but gives address violations"

    June 15, 2006   |   By jsneeringer

    Version: WebMon 1.0.1

    Pros

    Seems to work, and it's free.

    Cons

    Whenever I try to open it or try to change the preferences, I get a message about an address violation. It does appear to be working, but I can't change the preferences. Maybe I should re-install it. Also, e-mail notifications would be very nice, but what do you want for free.

    "Updates are inaccurate"

    July 28, 2005   |   By Grahf

    Version: WebMon 1.0.1

    Pros

    It's a good concept.

    Cons

    Says pages are updated when they are not. This completely voids the whole point of having this.
