Editors' review

WebSite-Watcher ensures you never miss an update on a favorite Web site. While this software does what it promises, we found some serious hurdles that many may find troublesome.

This program stars working right after you download. The first screen you will see asks you to input which sites to watch. The rest of the program, however, is not nearly as intuitive as this first step. Once you see your Web pages listed, you are basically left to fend for yourself. While the program is fairly simple to comprehend after experimenting with different buttons, there are still several icons that do not make sense.

Fortunately, one of the commands that is fairly simple to locate is the the Test icon, which covers the primary function of pulling in updates. This option allows the program to scan your list of sites for new content. If new information is detected, there is a helpful option to highlight all changes. By opening the URL within the program, a yellow highlight appears around new content, making it easy to see what's new.

While WebSite-Watcher functioned as promised, it may be overwhelming or confusing to casual computer users. In addition, we wish we could figure out if there was a scheduler that automatically checks for updates; if there was one available, it certainly wasn't obvious. Overall, though, the program does the job it promises and is a good download for those willing to put in the extra effort to understand all the options.
