WebLogger: a data collection tool for Web-use studies

 

Considering the amount of interest in studying Web browsing behavior, there is a relative lack of tools for data collection in this area. Those tools that do exist have significant limitations on the data they are able to collect or on their suitability for efficient analysis. We present WebLogger, a tool which instruments Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser. We have found that WebLogger alleviates some of the problems associated with other approaches to browser-based data collection methods.
