Find for multiple text

Like BestBuy, they don't use "add to cart" only. Sometimes they use "see details". It will be very nice to FIND multiple texts at the same time. Thanks.

Restart auto refresh feature once target is found/not found

I constantly forget to press start again once the target text is found, and then realize too late that I've had the refresh feature turned off the whole time. Would be great if once the target is found, you can set it to restart automatically. Maybe this can be hacked by opening the page in a new tab--I'll try that.

Open Tab Once Target Is Found

Whenever I use the auto-refresher, I have a few tabs open. Every time I hear the alert, it's a guess for me to figure out which tab caused the alert. Please add a feature where it automatically selects and opens the tab!

Be able to check both for text being present and for text being absent.

On some pages, I need to look for something like "Out of Stock" to disappear. On others, I need to look for something like "Add to Cart" to appear. I want to be able to monitor both types of pages at the same time.

When text is gone

So I'd like to see when this "out of stock" is gone off the page- because other things are being sold here, so I can't alert when it goes to "add to cart." A reverse text alert would be great.

Delay test

Provide a delay timer after the page refreshes to test for the text. Often times, websites use javascript to swap text. Thus, it would be great to have a small delay to give the javascript a moment to initialize and change anything before the test happens.

Look for whole HTML code for button and not text in it

Many sites using related products bar, which has same button memo "Add to Cart". But these related products has different html code for button, for instance: Product that i am looking for has that HTML code: Related products has: So there is not way to distinguish between these if text "Add to Cart" is used. In previous versions i was able to search for the html code "data-selenium="addToCartButton"" in order to correctly identify needed button.

Stop refreshing if you click anywhere on the page

If you don't stop the refresh, then you could miss the very opportunity you're trying to catch. Bringing up the popup, along with the cognitive context swap, takes a few seconds. Stopping with a click solves the problem nicely (and also pass the click through to whatever you clicked on).

CSS Selectors / JS Execution on the page.

Option for CSS selector (or JS execution) to return true/false. For example, I would like to target a button (add to cart) being NOT disabled. So something like: !document.querySelector('button.checkout').disabled When this button is not disabled I would like a notification.

Delay on text search & Search text after complete page reloading

An option to delay the text search after the page refresh. I'm trying to refresh a page and search for text currently, but it doesn't show up for a few seconds after the page loads because the page has to search for the information.

notification when the pages or an item changes

Match non-breaking spaces " "

I am trying to find the target text "Results Found: 1" on my page. This doesn't match for some reason. Checking the source, it uses a non-breaking space: "Results Found: 1". I have tried matching this target text, but I can't seem to get it to work

Notify if instance of text increases beyond defined threshold

Useful when looking for "Add to basket", but if there are also some items already for sale on the same page. It would be great to be able to trigger notification when, for example "Add to basket" occurs more than 4 times on the page. Some websites have "related items" at the bottom of the page of the thing you are looking at, which result in false positives - as they are usually in stock, when the item you want is not.

Ability to define JavaScript (callback) function to be executed when a text is found

It would be great if there were the ability to execute custom JavaScript code when a match occurs with the DOM element containing the found text as an argument. This would be useful in situations where one normally would need to press a button first to open a dialog and then perform another operation on the dialog. The ability to execute custom code could help automate this process in order to minimize human intervention when a match occurs.

Restart button in pop-up

Please could you consider adding a 'Start' / 'Restart' / 'Go Again' button to the pop-up window when a change is detected? Currently, every time a target is lost or found I get the option to Show Tab or Dismiss, it would be great to have one called 'Restart' so I could just click it in the pop up (at the minute I have to click on the icon in the extension bar and then click start. I would find this very useful.

Your regex matching is ignoring cases even when they're defined in the regex (please fix)

For example: When [A-Z]{3} is used in the regex for this plugin it matches any 3 letter upper cases OR 3 letter lower case letters, when it only should be matching any 3 letter upper cases letters.

To automatically not refresh when working in browser.

When working in a browser window that is actively auto refreshing, sometimes the work you are doing is interrupted by a refresh actions. In some cases causing entries to be lost. The auto refresh add-in should be able to be configured to pause the auto fresh until the window does not have any activity like typing, I have seen other add-ins do this kind of pause action. Thanks,

add delay field

some pages will load mock data, or the homepage before loading the proper queried list. In my case, it's loading a list from the homepage and triggering the "in stock", even though the page doesn't have any. A small delay before the checking starts would solve it for me.

Korean language support issues

Thank you for supporting Korean. However, very poor quality translations hinder the use of the feature. Is there any way to change it to English until a better quality translation is available? In addition, it would be nice to have translation support through a simple site. For example, min = 의사록 This is a completely wrong translation and I wish there was a site that could suggest a better translation of this. It would be nice to collect these suggestions in the form of a one-page wiki and update them later after the developer checks them. Updates every certain period of time will lead to better translations over time, even for bad translations.
