One of the things that I find myself doing on a regular basis is checking the same sites over and over again. There are several reasons for this, the most common is that it is a software company and when they release a new build of their software… I want to know right away. The other big benefit is when I’m tracking a solution to a problem that is listed on a site. I’ve played with several utilities to do this for me and my favorite, by far, is UpdatePatrol by Bitberry Software. The software is extremely flexible, providing support for regular expressions, custom schedules, tray or email notifications. This is one of those tools that you find yourself using several times a day and sure beats using a browser manually.

Short List:

UpdatePatrol by Bitberry Software.

WebSite-Watcher by Aignesberger Software
