Abstract

This paper proposes a tool for tracking a thought process in web searching because we considered that user's browsing history potentially contains the transition information of a thought process of how to collect information efficiently. In fact, we have few opportunities to look back own browsing way. Even if we check the enormous browsing logs, it is hard to convert them into sharable knowledge. Therefore, our tool measure the dwell time, the amount of scrolling and page contents and transition between pages for evaluating the importance of each page. In addition, our tool provides an editing function to summarize a thought process based on the importance of each page. Copyright held by the owner/author(s).
