Software for Checking updates on Different Forums.

Hi Experts

I have to check the updates to selected links on 4-5 different forums on a daily basis. Is there some tool which can automatically check out those 5 links and inform me about any new updates that have happened there, after my last visit? So that I do not have to manually go and check out myself, just to find that there have not been any new posts made on those links.

I am not looking for email alerts etc. type of option. I need some software or other tool, which can show me the Exact New Updates that have happened on those selected links that I provide it.

Please suggest me some method by which this could be done.

I am using  Windows 7 x64 on my main machine.

Thanks

Hello,
try to locate in your forums if they support RSS feeds. Then you can use RSS reader application or plugin to the browser.

Perhaps there could be something similar available for whichever web browser you prefer.

@Tomas, thanks for the link.

I also found one more software that might work - http://aignes.com/ WebSite-Watcher

Trying to see if they could be used for my work.

Any more ideas are welcome. Thanks
