Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

HTTP - Monitor Page Response Time

Wondering if setting up an HTTP test to check for the closing html tag in a page is enough to monitor an approximate response time for a web page?

Not needing exact ms load times. Just an average to see if there are times the page times out.

Is the check duration approximate enough?

Re: HTTP - Monitor Page Response Time

The check duration is how long it takes for the page source to load. So there's no need to add a filter for the closing tag.
