I am looking for a Safari extension similar to Update Scanner (for Firefox) and Page Monitor (for Chrome). Any suggestions?

I don't know any extension like this one, but I've used Changes Meter which works really fine. It's a small app in your menubar and gets the job done.

I had never thought of looking for a separate application rather than a web browser extension. Works just as well. Thanks! – reg May 6 '12 at 14:01

Changes Meter is an app that just notify you about some change in web page. But it does not inform you about what has changed.

Can you please provide a link to the tool mentioned? – patrix Sep 23 '12 at 20:12

I've found this old software that might do the trick Safari Page Monitor

Using a browser extension for this means it will only notify you when your browser is online.

I use which notifies me 24x7 and it's quite simple to use.

You don't even have to sign up on the site.
