Setting browser to check for changes to a page?

  1. Nov 15, 2012 #1
    Is there a way to set a browser to automatically check a list of webpages once a day, then notify you if there is a change to that webpage?

    Specifically, I'd like a program to check the employment page of about 50 different school districts each day and notify me if a job is posted.

    I used to use Page Monitor when I wanted to keep up with certain blogs that weren't setup for RSS.

    It's a Chrome addon, so you'll obviously need Chrome. Then you simply visit the page, click the button, and you'll get notifications. I don't use it anymore, but I think there was a setting to set how often you want the changes to be checked.

    An easier way would be to subscribe to their RSS feed, assuming they have one.
