TrackBrowser is a simple to use web browser designed for researching web usability. It can be used as a normal browser if required, but that is not its intended purpose.
What TrackBrowser does is this: It records a users behaviour while they are browsing the web. A series of events (which can be controlled by the experimentor) can be recorded to a text file along with the time (to the second) and date are recorded alongside, allowing a researcher to get a complete record of what the user did
The events that may be recorded are:
The events recorded are controlled by a simple dialog box. After starting the browser, click on Edit -> Preferences... , and just tick those events that you want, then click on the "okay" button. Just before the experiment begins, click on Edit -> Set Log File... and a dialog will open asking for a file name. This is the file that the data are saved to.
For those who do not have Python installed, there is a standalone version made with the McMillan installer which contains all the essential files.
