Hi guys,

I have a list of about 10-20 mainly plain-text type sites I visit
frequently that get updated every few weeks.

Does anyone know of a program/preferably a Firefox Extension, that
will automatically/(silently?) load these and alert me if any of these
pages change.. as opposed to manually visiting each site and looking.

I did think about RSS, but most of these sites don't have it...

I've had a quick look round Google..but havn't come up with much..so
far... Could anyone recommend anything that would do the trick?

Cheers,

Mark

Maybe use something like this http://sourceforge.net/projects/script4rss/ to
convert those websites into RSS feeds and then use a standard RSS reader?
