Specter, Inc. is proud to announce the immediate availability 
of WebWatch 1.0 for Windows. WebWatch is a tool for keeping 
track of changes in selected Web documents.

Given an HTML document referencing URLs on the Web, WebWatch 
produces a filtered list, containing only those URLs that have 
been modified since a given time.

The input file can be e.g.
- the bookmark file of Netscape; or 
- the exported (to HTML format) hotlist of Mosaic; or 
- any other, standard HTML document, edited locally or 
retrieved from the Web.

The time used for filtering
- can be given as a global setting that applies to all URLs, or 
- WebWatch can derive it automatically, using the time of your 
last visit to the document, as recorded by your Web browser in 
your local HTML (bookmark) file.

WebWatch generates a local HTML document that contains links to 
only those documents which were updated after the given date. 
You can load this document into any Web browser and use it to 
navigate to the updated documents.

WebWatch stores its arguments in a parameter file. Once you 
have customized the program to your needs, using its graphical 
front-end, you can have it run in unattended mode, periodically.

WebWatch supports the use of proxy servers.

WebWatch is currently available for every (16 and 32 bit) 
Windows platforms.

WebWatch is shareware. Single user registration after 30 days 
evaluation is US $18. We offer free registration for every new 
bug found.
