Last week, somewhere, I read about Commentful, a service that enables you to monitor blog posts for new comments. This comes in handy because I probably leave five comments a day on other people’s blogs, and if I want to see follow-ups, I either have to leave the windows open, or remember to check back. With its lightweight Firefox plug-in, Commentful seems to be solving this problem:
Commentful is a service that watches comments/follow-ups on Blog posts, Digg submissions, Flickr pictures, and many other types of content. When ever there is an update, such as a new follow-up or comment, Commentful notifies you instantly.
It’s not exactly feature-rich at the moment, but it does what it says on the box. On someone’s recommendation, I’d tried coComment about six months ago, but I had some technical issues with it (something about Flickr integration, if I recall correctly). coComment certainly does more than Commentful, but I’ll stick with the latter for the time being.
