IBM claims it can increase Web praoductivity and track Internet usage with its Web Browser Intelligence (WBI) software for the desktop.
Known as 'Webby', this free downloadable tool enables Internet users to check the speed and availability of Web page links, track where a user has been, and automatically up date users on changes to a Web site since the last visit.
WBI can run on Windows NT and 95, OS/2 and if installed on a workgroup server, on Windows 3.1. It will run with any browser. Using a development toolkit, WBI can also be programmed to filter push and pull information or to target specific information on the Internet.
"The software is designed to personalise your Web browsing, reduce tedious tasks, take actions on your behalf, and even offer assistance, " claimed the company.
IBM is planning to use the technology commercially but has not said when or for what specific uses.
