Is there an app that checks websites for changes & alerts you if any have changed?

    I'm using Changes Meter now, but it's spotty at best. If the internet connection breaks, it won't work correctly unless you reboot.

    I need something better and thought you guys may know of something that I don't.

    Anything you can think of that does this?

    Many websites offer RSS feeds to track updates to the site. RSS Readers are found easily on the Mac App Store.

    That's good advice, but I was looking for something non-RSS if possible. :) Thanks though!

    May I ask you what do you try to accomplish?

    Safari's Top Sites page indicates when websites on it have changed. Just pin the sites you visit regularly so they'll be permanent in Top Sites, and then changed pages will be indicated by a curled upper right page revealing a silver star.

    Basically, i just want a better version of Changes Meter. Changes Meter seems to not work at all from time to time.
