- by Firefox user 6999874, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great! Very useful function-I have no icon in toolbar and toolbar menu, is it a bug in FF20?-What about adding Rss? I'm dreaming for sure. Only one plug-in instead both, Simple stuff?
- by Tutenstein, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5This is an amazing addon. The only things that would make it better off the top of my head is if the blue arrow icon blinked continuously when sites are updated and if all the sites that are in the list are updated at once instead of being apart by minutes since having many notifications of site updates becomes a little annoying after a while.
- by Skyking, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5This is an excellent add-on. One feature I wish could be incorporated would be to ignore a specified field or frame of a page. I have some pages that I wish to monitor but they are constantly updated with "atta boys" in one section of the page. That section is entirely irrelevant to what I am monitoring and so I would like to dispense with notices just because changes are made there. Thanks for the great product! - Phillip
- by lisek, 8 years agoRated 3 out of 5is it possible to look for changes if particular word will appear on site? i am not interested with changes that are not related with specific word. If my page is changed and my word appeared than I'd like to be notified. I can monitor activity of other users on pages. Regards
- by trlkly, 8 years agoRated 2 out of 5Yep, that's a major flaw. It counts the followers and hours since each post on Twitter. The very first update it didn't, but it did every time after that.That would have been only one star, but I threw in an extra one for the nice interface. The way it acts when it gets an update is nice.
But the addon does not work as it says it will work, so it cannot get an average (3 stars) or above review. I had to uninstall this because I couldn't use it.
- by Snowhite, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Sorry I was unable to contribute but the add on is perfect keeps things up to date so u don't have to search for what u are lookin for. Good foor u for tryin and keep up the good work.
- by AKA, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5Very great extension to keep automatically an eye on web pages of interest.
I would make it a five stars if, in addition of triggering detection on a minimal number of characters, it allows me to detect change between 2 parametrized strings of the update Scanner's pages.
- by ers2258, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Sure would have been nice if there was a mention somewhere that said you can only use a .wav format for a sound file for the Notification Sound feature to work. An .mp3 sound file format will not work.
Well, now you all know.
- by Rigs, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Could I make a suggestion ??
It would be nice to be able to disable some scans that are set up. I.e. there are times when you have to re-login to a site. If there are several update scans set up for that site there are continuous popups that a webpage has changed, when it's really comparing a previous page to the login page. Maye a checkbox next to each entry in order to enable/disable.
Great addon by the way - I'd be lost without it !!
- by Jakub Narębski, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5Very nice and useful extension. I especially like that you can check for updates ("scan") on demand.
What would be nice is to have a [x] button to remove Update Notifier overlay (you can do this by hand by selecting main page and choosing "Frames > Show only This Frame" in context menu).. though now I see that one can choose "Active Page" from the list (old, new, changes, active). It would be nice to be able to force it to rely on "Last-Modified" HTTP header and ignore specific sections of page - otherwise it is not useful for WordPress-based blogs using "Random Quote" plugin.
Unfortunately there is bug in Update Scanner bugtracker - I cannot create account (lots of error, no way to set password).
