Current Version: 1.3

Web Watcher is another terrific application from Chaotic Software, the same people who brought us such classic titles as Web Devil and MP3 Rage. Web Watcher helps inform you of changes to web sites you are interested in so you don't have to repeatedly check them yourself. The program can notify you of changes in a variety of ways: email, visual and audible alerts, and showing the changed URL in your web browser. "File" URLs (file://) can be also be watched to inform you of changes. Web Watcher works well and has a simple-to-understand interface, but I would find a bulk importer (or, at the very least, a bookmark import utility) quite useful, as the current interface only allows sites to be added one at a time, which can become quite tedious. Version 1.3 adds/changes the following:

  • Carbonized to run native on Mac OS 8, 9 and X from a single binary.
