netstiff (formerly known as webdiff) is a powerful Web and FTP site update checker. It supports a variety of different methods (diff, HTML, size, date, MD5 sum, regexp) to check for updates. There are also sophisticated settings to make it useful for partly dynamic Web pages. Without any given arguments, netstiff will either run its interactive configuration tool or check your sites for updates and print the changes in a diff(1)-like manner.

You are right. I decided for "netstiff". It's a rhyme and there are no google hits yet. So the next version will be released under the name "netstiff". What do you, users, think about it?
(Alright, I think there can't be a better name than "webdiff", but I want a unique name.)
A new name?
the name "webdiff" is conflicting with the tool with the same name in "websec". Does any user have nice ideas for a new name of my webdiff?
What about "netdiff"? ;-)
