This program watches for changes in information up to in several Internet objects, and when it discovers a change, the icon in your system tray will blink. Clicking on the blinking icon will allow you to read the changes. You set up the parameters, such as how often to look, etc. The Watchman window is divided into 2 parts; the left shows the watched objects, and the right shows the first 100 charaters of the changes in the documents being watched. The first 100 characters is usually enough to tell you if you want to double click on the object and the get the default internet browser for the intire article.

It will also watch for new mail.This is very helpfull if you have more than one e-mail address. The shareware version is limited to one watched objects.

For a utility, this is an easy program to use.
