I would like to know if there is any free application that would let an acoustic sound ping me whenever a specific website title changes to a specific (set of) titles.

This is because the site has some internal messaging but the only notify is the title changing and an icon that lights up (but the exact icon depends on the current skin for the page).

I usually use Chrome but I can try other browsers if they better suite those needs. I'm on Windows 7.

Answers that provide solutions for two browsers at least are better.

Answers that direct me to learning some programming to achieve the results are OK as long as they give me a place where I can actually learn.

I also found this but I'm not sure how to implement it - I program in C++ at best.

  • Could this be a userscript that runs on every page? It would work on any open tab and would ping you on any tab's <title> element change. – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Aug 1 '15 at 8:57
  • @ᔕᖺᘎᕊ that would be less useful, unless I run a separate browser window for the site I want to monitor, or unless A "which title change?" could be useful, but it's a start. – Zachiel Aug 1 '15 at 22:47
  • I could make a userscript that runs on all running tabs on any window that sounds a small ping and displays an alert x changed to y... would that work for you? – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Aug 2 '15 at 9:22
  • I couldn't actually tell you the number of the tab because this will be a userscript and not a chrome extension - and it will work in all browsers - but it will focus the tab that has the title change when it alerts you. – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Aug 2 '15 at 9:27

    It would ping you and show a short notification on the bottom right of your screen saying x changed to y. – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Aug 3 '15 at 8:54
