    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?
