WebMon 1.0.12
Monitor your favourite web pages for changes

WebMon is a tiny free tool which can monitor specified web pages and let you know when they're updated. Which means you'll be alerted just as soon as your favourite sites have something new to offer, without the hassle of having to keep revisiting them manually.

This all starts with a right-click on the program's system tray icon. Click "Add Page", enter the URL of the page you'd like to monitor, and how often it should be checked (you're able to specify anything from minutes to days).

Click OK and the program will then run in the background (it only consumes around 6.5MB RAM, so shouldn't be too much of an issue), accessing the specified page at your chosen frequency and raising a pop-up alert if it sees the content has changed.

Need to monitor more pages? You can manually add as many as you like (although, of course, if you're checking 500 every minute then that's going to generate a lot of network activity). And the program can also directly import your Internet Explorer Favorites, or URLs from a Bookmarks.html file.

Some pages will raise alerts all the time, perhaps because they contain dynamic content (current headlines, say). WebMon does a reasonable job of catering for this by allowing you to specify an area of the page to check, though. It's not easy to set up - you must wade through page source code - but still a reasonable solution for a free tool of this size.

And if you don't like some other aspect of WebMon's operation, the good news is that the program is highly configurable. Not happy with the default pop-up alert, for instance? Then you can change its position, have it close more quickly, replace the pop-up with a sound, even just run another program of your choice whenever the content of a web page changes (which presents all kinds of automation possibilities).

Verdict:

A compact, versatile and configurable web page monitor

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
