Is there a way to have a Safari webpage refresh automatically every minute to every couple minutes? I have a page that updates very frequently that I need info from.

Im not really familiar with RSS but does it do something like that? I seriously doubt this site does not have a feed (if thats what it needs). teaneck taxi and limo


Thanks

Go to Safara/ Preferences/ Extensions, then Get Extensions. Under Productivity there's an app for that.

Slight tweak to this...

Is there any extension similar to this that allows me to watch for specific text and alert me when it does?

i.e. watch a news site, every few seconds to hours, for the word "Boston" and when it appears alert me with a buzz or something.

You could very easily cobble something like that together with the web service IFTT (if this then that).

Here is a IFTT "recipe" that would do this with email. You can find other recipes to do the same thing with a SMS alert or even a push notification to the IFTT iOS app.

That doesn't quite look like what I'm looking for.

What I'm trying to monitor is: http://gunbot.net/reloading/Powder/

Once say: "Vihtavuori N330" shows up, I would like to either get an alert via a sound on the system I'm watching it on or even a txt to my phone.

Chrome had an extension called auto refresh plus. Version 1.0 did what I'm asking but it appears they've removed that functionality in the later/current versions.

Anyone have any ideas?
