Yoink monitors websites
Softchaos today announced that ," an automatic web monitoring widget based on Webstractor. Yoink periodically checks the text content of a web page, and if significantly changed, captures the page. The adjustable thumbnail-size window displays a red indicator bar gauging the percentage of changed text. Webstractor captures multiple web pages, removes unwanted content, annotates, organizes, retrieves, and assembles the found materials into effective documents. Webstractor 1.5 adds a "radar" feature to monitor web pages for specified keywords and capture them when an appropriate change occurs. Webstractor ($80) requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
