Monitor for open browser windows to specific URL
Posted on 2014-04-14
Is it possible for a Windows app (running as a service or in the system tray) to monitor if a user has an open browser window to a URL matching a certain criteria, and then get that URL?
For example, i want to know if any computers in the company have an open browser window to https://ww3.site.com/ticket/entry/time=23421
the last number will be a variable, so as long as all the text in front of it's a match, then we need to know.
the program would have to monitor across IE, Chrome, and Firefox. ideally without any browser extensions.
of course if there's a program already out there to do this (which can then feed certain data to an API) that's great, but if now we can get one built, i just need to know if it's doable.
