In such cases, I'm left with the only option to check those websites or apps regularly.<div><br></div><div>e.g. <a href="">Commodity seller's&nbsp;price list</a>, <a href="">Banking sites which provide forex data</a>.</div><div><br></div><div>Often, what I require from these pdf or other web content are just small pieces of information which can be sent over through notifications instead of having to spend the time in visiting these websites/apps or having to remember to do so.<br><br>Essentially I'm looking for a tool, which allows me to select a particular piece of information on the web or pdf to be sent as notifications at the intervals set by me, if the information is updated.</div><div><br></div><div>Has anyone else faced this problem? Or have a solution to this? do let me know.</div><div><br></div> 3 points posted by Bakshara /problems/114-pdf-notification-webscrapping 114 Mon, 27 Apr 2020 07:02:00 +0000 Identifying letter O from 0 and vice versa #typography #web Often I come across a situation on the web where I have to spend time deciphering whether the character is English alphabet O or the number 0 but almost always get it wrong. Due to seemingly unlimited number of fonts on the web, websites especially one involving some random alphanumeric codes often suffer from this issue.<div><br></div><div>I think, this is purposeful for captcha to deliberately put automated tools into misery; but this happens way too often with general text i.e those which are not in captcha as well.</div><div><br></div><div>I would like to have some kind of tool, which helps me differentiate 0 from O and vice versa on demand.</div> 4 points posted by Jack Ward /problems/12-identifying-letter-o-from-0-and-vice-versa-typography-web 12 Sun, 01 Sep 2019 12:24:00 +0000 Hiding spoilers of shows and movies in the web #web #spoilers When I haven't watched the latest episode of a very famous show or haven't watched a famous movie, I am forced to go off the grid (off Internet) until I have watched the show or movie because of the spoilers.<br><br>Currently I am using blocker plugins on browsers such as Ublock Origin to block comment section of certain websites, unsubscribe from subreddits related to that show or movie to prevent spoilers. These methods are not efficient, in turn loose the benefits of comments and non-spoiler content from my favourite subreddits as well.<br><br>I think there is a need gap for spoiler blocking considering how much media coverage famous shows and movies are getting nowadays.&nbsp; 3 points posted by Book Lover /problems/34-hiding-spoilers-of-shows-and-movies-in-the-web-web-spoilers 34 Sat, 14 Sep 2019 15:52:00 +0000 Top visited, shared content in a website #analytics #web When I read a good article from a random blog or website, I would like to read other top rated content from the same website. By top rated, I mean the most visited and shared content from the same website.<div><br></div><div>Most websites don't have any widget to rank their best articles. I would like to know if there is any tool which one can use to get the top ranked content from any website and if not is there a need gap for this?</div> 2 points posted by Yogesh Basu /problems/98-top-visited-shared-content-in-a-website-analytics-web 98 Tue, 10 Mar 2020 16:50:00 +0000
