Abstract

Often times, web users visit sites that contain several embedded hyperlinks. The current way that the user checks to see if the web content on the other side of those links has changed is by following each of those links and checking one by one. This can be tedious and time consuming. Described herein is a methodology for notifying the user of updated web content automatically in a way that is unobtrusive and intuitive.
