Automatically check for web page updates

    There is a web page that gets updated each day, but at different times each
    day. I'd like to be alerted somehow as soon as it gets updated so that I
    don't need to keep checking. Is there someway to set Internet Explorer to
    do periodically check if it has been updated and alert me when it has. It
    seems like the sort of thing a web browser ought be able to do. I use IE6,
    WIN XP or WIN 2000 (depending on which computer I am at). In each place I
    have some sort of always on internet connection (cable at home T-1, I think,
    at work).

    I am aware that IE can check one time per day at a scheduled time through
    the favorites menu. What I need is simething that might check several times
    during the day since there is not set time where the page gets updated.

    Thanks.

    I think you'll find that Mozilla or Firefox may well do this.

    Thanks again, Rifleman. I never used that feature and didn't know it
    existed until now. Cool! :)
