HI all,

I want to programmatically record the webpage that are browsed in IE 6.0 or
Firefox into a log file... How to do that in VB, or VC? What is the easiest
and fastest way of doing so?

Thanks a lot!

All of the visited web pages are supposed to be in the History folder.
You'll just have to figure out how to copy them to your log file. (But why
would you want to do that when they are already there in the History
folder?)

Are you looking to extract viewing history for analysis? Try these two articles
from SecurityFocus, which examine several solutions:

Should be \windows\history. It may be hidden - do a search.

The history folder only holds shortcuts to pages visited in the last 20
days, not all pages visited.

This would have to be a client-based application and all you'd need to do is
take the client-side scripting document.location and append it to a log
file.
