Idea for a little app

The following probably already exists, but I’ve not come across it. If you leave a comment on somebody else’s blog, you have to remember to return to check whether anybody’s responded. Here’s an example. I don’t always remember to go back and even if I do want to, sometimes I can’t recall the URL.

Idea: a little application where you could paste in the URL of the page you left a comment on. The app would capture the exact state of the page at the point of registration, monitor it from that point onwards and display the page whenever it’s updated. Given that not all comments might not always be relevant to the poster, it could also log the content of the user’s post and then grade the relevance of subsequent comments to the original one. Could also be a widget or a browser extension.
