That is if these sites are on my server. I am talking about sites elsewhere so 
would require downloading everything first. Websec (off Sid) keeps the 
previous version around for you and compares from the URL.

(IBM once had a cute one that worked off Netscape bookmarks. Added a tiny icon 
for connect speed alerted changed sites. But as its database grew, one's 
computer slowed to a crawl. Was alpha software, probably Java.)
