Something like Google History for searches, should be able to work from anywhere (I login and my web usage should be "recorded").

Also, should be searchable for it to be of any use.

  • Google Web history is only related to searches.
  • Browser history is not the answer because I use multiple browsers, sometimes from multiple machines.

Google Web History can be set up to track things other than just search - see this article. As I understand it you have to install the Google Toolbar which will then submit all the URLs you access to Google Web History.

+1. As of August 2013, Google Toolbar is only available for Internet Explorer. If you're using Chrome, all of the features of Google Toolbar are built into it. –  mvark Aug 13 '13 at 9:51

Any web application that monitors your internet usage would have to have a component on your computer, something between you and the internet or be included in every website you want to be tracked on, so it's not possible.

OpenDNS, you have to register and I guess you have to have static IP.

OpenDNS is a good solution, as you browse via their proxies, meaning they are more likely to pick up all your 'habits'. (I use them purely as a more reliable DNS source than my flaky-ISP) –  Jon Hadley Jul 16 '10 at 12:38

ManicTime is another option. It is similar to RescueTime From both you can get detailed reports with cool statistics.

You might have a look at Mozilla Weave The feature set says that they even sync your browser history...

RescueTime watches what you do. It knows, when you do "internet stuff" based on the programs you use.
