    I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app for the Mac that will monitor a given web page for any changes in content and immediately send an email or other alert letting me know. I don't care so much about the particular changes, just the fact that a change was made.

    I was looking at Web Secretary, but it's a *nix app that doesn't have a GUI and I'm not entirely sure it would do what I need. I would rather have something a bit more user-friendly anyway, and preferably free.

    thanks for the suggestion, but that seems to only offer the quickest updates at once per day... I'm looking for something that would check continuously throughout the day and alert me immediately when a change is made

    Sunflower used to be free. But while it's now shareware, it still does have a free version that works well.
