Web page change monitoring for Mac OS X

Web page change monitoring for Mac OS X

There is a site that I need to monitor for changes and pop an alarm if the change is over a certain threshold. Ideally it would use Growl to pop the notification but I'm open to alternatives.

"If I get your question correctly you're looking for an application that gives you a notification when a given web site changes. If I'm wrong, ignore this answer.

The widely accepted solution to this problem is RSS. Googling led me to an RSS Growler which might fulfill your needs.

If the site you want notifications for doesn't support RSS there isn't an easy way to monitor it other than polling it."
