Had a prior web page search program that relied on ITFFF to send me an email notification but ITFFF doesn't seem to support that search program any longer. Distill Web Monitor has a built in email notification capability along with others. I checked out the email alert and it worked great. It also incorporates REGEX for extracting numbers from selected fields that have other non numeric characters. Support is first class in that I got a solution to an issue had within 24 hours.

Very interesting.. Monitors and has some CSS capapility. Unfortunately, the site that I go to seems to dislike it, and boots me out every time the monitor checks. 6/2/22 Macro option requires paid subscription.
