Well, now you can.Before we begin, you might be asking why would I ever need to use an MD5 Hash on a web page?The reason is simple: Check to see if a web page changes.Why can't I just compare two files?You can do that; however, you have to keep the whole web page in your memory. Although this may not be an issue with one file, it can be an issue if you are storing many files. Also, it's clearly visible at what state the web page changes. That means you can easily visually find where changes occur.
