    Does this exist? If so, what's it called and where can I get it?

    Does the said page have an RSS feed? Many pages nowadays do. look for the little orange RSS icon or a little orange radio wave icon. If there is an RSS feed you can use any number of programs from Safari to My Yahoo to track site updates. The BBC has the best info about RSS feeds that I've seen http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/help/3223484.stm#whatisrss

    OmniWeb does this automatically.

    It's been a part of Netscape browsers since around Communicator, version 4.

    I'm using Firefox version 2.0b1 but you should find it under the Bookmarks menu or where it used to be in the bookmark's properties.

    I'm looking for more of an e-mail sent to me whenever the page updates. And no, the page doesn't have RSS.

    Daniel.

    Okay, I've got OmniWeb now... how will I know when a page has been updated?

    Daniel.
