Updating of Web Pages using Page Update Checker add-on for Firefox
Internet has changed the way people can acquire and share information. A program that monitors a website should obviously check the website at regular intervals and compare present state of the website with its previous one. Users should be informed about all the updates of the website.
Lets say you are tracking a product on an online buy / auction site like lets say eBay, or following some hot news in real time, the popular way many users adopt to update the web page which they are following is manually pressing F5 button. This process of manual updating has the risk of “forgetting”.
If you want to stay updated of all the changes in favorite website, instead of wasting time in reloading the web page manually there is a better way of updating it automatically.
For users with Mozilla Firefox the best way to stay updated of all the web pages can be achieved through Page Update Checker add-on, alerts you if there are any changes in the web page.
Page Update Checker will automatically display an alert message if there any changes. All you need to do is just right click on the page in Firefox and select “Monitor for Updates” at a frequency.
