Site Change Tracking Solution for Mac?

There are many free and commercial PC apps that do this.

Being that I'm on a PPC running OS X, none of these will work for me.

Does anyone know a mac based solution?

I basically need to track a single website and be notified within 3 minutes of any content changes. Similar to uptime monitoring services, but specifically looking for any change to the page itself.

Thanks in advance for any insight or advice.

Dante_Maure, there are up time monitoring services that will allow you to enter a string of text from your page and then alert you when that string has been altered or removed. The service I use can track text for as short as 2 minute intervals.

Thanks travelin cat... am trying out a software based solution I've found at the moment.

If it's not up to the task, I'll start checking the up time monitoring services that have the feature you mentioned.

Dejal's Simon.

Not terribly intuitive, but so far it's getting the job done with very low system usage.
