A simple browser extension to monitor prices, social media stats, sporting events and more
Earlier this year, during the run-up to the Boston Marathon, I needed a new pair of shoes for race day. Nike’s new VaporFly 3 shoes had been announced, but with no specific release date in the US — only rumors.
So over the course of several days, I found myself in a near constant “refresh loop”, looking to see when I could get my hands on the new shoes and make sure I got them in time for race day.
The story has a happy ending, as the shoes were released in early April and I got them in time for race day, but the whole thing got me thinking: there’s got to be a better way to keep an eye out for changes to web content!
Well, of course, there are better ways — a number of Chrome extensions can keep an eye out for changing content on websites. But there were none for the Safari Browser! Until now.
Introducing Expedition: Website Monitoring for Safari, Made Simple
Inspired by my obsessive refreshing to get a new pair of shoes, I developed Expedition: a simple browser extension to help you monitor web content in Safari.
Expedition lets you select targeted content from websites, and automatically checks the content periodically in the background. When content changes, you can easily access the updates from the Expedition toolbar icon.
Expedition is great for tracking changes in headlines, prices, sports scores, social media stats and much more.
Want to give it a try? Check out Expedition in the Mac OS App Store!
