Web Historian - Visualize your web use to understand your habits
Have you ever lost track of time online? Need to retrace your steps to re-find something? Are you curious how you use the web at different times of the day? Which sites lead you to other sites most often? How your use of a website changes over time? The answers to these questions and many more are locked in data that is already in your web browser. Unlock it with Web Historian.
Web browsers keep history data, but they don't enable users to benefit from this data to understand their own habits. Web historian is a browser extension that helps users see their web browsing patterns using interactive visualizations. Users can harness this information to make informed decisions about their web use.
Many companies collect and analyze web browsing history for marketing and advertising purposes. Browsing history data has been less accessible to those who want to analyze their own web browsing behavior, and to researchers who study the social impact of the web. That is why Web Historian was created. Web Historian is a non-profit open source project developed specifically to provide users with as much transparency and control over their own information as possible. When users install Web Historian they download a program that runs only on their computer, not online. Users can opt-in to a research study after they install Web Historian and remove anything they want from their browsing history.
Take control of how you use the web with Web Historian.
