WebSite-Watcher 2024 (24.0) changelog:

  • New check technology: Edge/Browser. You can try to use this technology when a server detects the other technologies as bot.
  • Check technology Screenshot: Edge can be used as browser engine.
  • The Plugin system has a completely new scripting engine. The new scripting engine has a new syntax. For compatibility reasons, plugins created with the old plugin system will continue to work for the time being. However, new plugins can only be created with the new plugin system.
  • The check technology "Chromium" has a new alternative method to get the page content: "Collect". This method analyzes all transferred documents and collects them to a single page. This method might be useful if WebSite-Watcher cannot resolve IFRAMES or other embedded elements.
  • Twitter/X lists can be monitored via RSS feed
  • When you insert new bookmarks, WebSite-Watcher first searches for duplicates in the selected folder, then, if not found, in all folders.
  • WebSite-Watcher ignores the soft-hyphen character (Unicode character U+00AD) in web pages. This character could also be misused to trigger updates in tools such as WebSite-Watcher.
  • New script commands: StringToFile, FileToString, MinutesAgo, HoursAgo, Now. (description and example see help file)
  • Chromium/Browser: When using the option to get the page content via PDF, WebSite-Watcher removes all CSS before printing the content to PDF. This produces more reliable results and prevents truncated text.
  • Proxy exclusion list: If a specified domain starts with a dot, then no proxy will be used for all sub-domains. Eg: will not use a proxy for, etc, but will use a proxy for
  • Chromium Check Macros improved
