WebSite-Watcher 2019 ( changelog:

  • Ransomware Detection: If WebSite-Watcher detects Ransomware on your PC, it will stop running WSW tasks, lock and protect as many important WSW files as possible, and you will get notified via user interface, by e-mail or via Pushover. This feature is disabled by default and can be turned on in the program configuration (Advanced + Ransomware Detection).
  • Send status messages via Pushover, for example when e-mails could not be sent. If you use WebSite-Watcher 24/7 on a server and if you're a Pushover user, then this is a very quick way to get notified on your phone when a problem occurs.
  • Browser integration via WSW eye button: WebSite-Watcher can grab URLs from all main browsers without installing an extra browser extension (if you have used the browser extension previously, you can remove it from your Internet Browser). This new method works with Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi, Opera, IE and Edge.
  • Send e-mail: New option "Use absolute image URLs in HTML mails" (program configuration). If this option is enabled, WebSite-Watcher will use absolute URLs for images in HTML mails, independently if you download images to your hard disk when checking bookmarks. This option is enabled by default and can dramatically reduce the size of HTML mails. Also Facebook/Twitter/Instagram bookmarks will benefit from that option.
  • Send e-mail: New subject variable {counter}. This counter increments by 1 with every e-mail sent. In your mailbox you can then see at a glance if a message did not come through because of a missing number.
  • Twitter RSS feeds improved: WSW also tries to monitor the content of embedded objects
  • Send e-mails: Improved handling of WebP images
  • Internal Browser: Opening a page with highlighted changes in the Text tab automatically jumps to the first change
  • External Chromium Browser Tabs: Optimizations when downloading exe/zip files directly from the checked page
  • Download Manager improvements to work around conflicts with Virus Scanners
  • Download Manager: Clicking "Abort active downloads" will pause the Download Manager until you click the Continue button
  • New option "Extract TITLE parameter from HTML tags" (Bookmark properties + Advanced + HTML). Extracts the text content from the ALT and TITLE parameters (from any HTML tag) and inserts it into the page. This makes it easy to monitor the contents of these parameters.
  • Internet Explorer Macros improved
  • Improved handling of image lazy loading
  • Follow-Links: Regular expressions to avoid duplicates didn't work correctly under certain circumstances
  • Phone bookmarks: Smaller fixes and improvements
  • WSW Eye is no longer displayed when Thunderbird is the active application
  • Smaller fixes and improvements
