      Distill Web Monitor vs Web Alert opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Distill is flexible about where you want to select. It offers you a lot of control. It doesn't redirect the way Web Alert does, but otherwise, it runs in the background, checks websites at select intervals, and notifies you of changes. The apps are not readily available, but the browser extension work
