Systematic usability studies of web-based applications require software tools and data standards to support both the capture and representation of users' activities. Web logging tools can be based within the browser, the website, or the underlyingserver. We compare the advantages and costs of these strategies. Logging tools produce logfiles, which must then be analyzed by the usability engineer. A common format for such logfiles would greatly facilitate information exchange and enable common software for presentation and analysis.
