PageProbe – Automatic Page Monitor

PageProbe WebExtension can monitor any web pages you can access on the Internet or in your company intranet. By simply right-clicking the content you see on a page, you can quickly create a tracker with optional conditions and actions and then view the status of those trackers in a simple monitoring view. By clicking the extension icon you can see a nice overview of all your trackers and the data retrieved. Trackers can be easily organized into groups. They believe that people are evaluating the things they monitor based on certain conditions and when those conditions are met, they will take action. For example, the price of the television that you want will drop below certain price. They believe that when this kind of tracking of many things happens manually every day, it is a huge waste of time and you can easily miss good discounts, buying or selling opportunities and as a result can also lose money. Therefore most of content monitoring should be easily automated so that an application will monitor the things you have defined, evaluates the results based on the conditions you have defined and then notifies you when those conditions are met so that you can take action. Features include: 1) Unlimited number of trackers that can monitor any accessible page on the Internet or intranet; 2) Fully local solution – does not require an account; 3) Trackers can be organized into a tree based hierarchy of groups; 4) Converters allow you to easily transform strings to numbers and perform simple arithmetic on them; 5) Advanced conditions for trackers: contains text, doesn’t contain text, contains all words, doesn’t contain words, contains any words, contains any words that start with, matches regexp, is, is not, begins with text, ends with text, smaller than, smaller than or equal, greater than, greater than or equal, is going up, is going down, has changed; 6) Case sensitive and case-insensitive matching; 7) Advanced actions: show desktop notification, play audio (local or URL), set color/CSS for monitor column/row, HTTP POST, IFTTT, data history logging, event log entry; 8) Data history logging will allow you to see with a simple chart how the value of some item has changed over time; 9) Export tracker table as Excel; and 10) Supports also cron / crontab style advanced scheduling!
