CiteHistory is an experimental Internet Explorer 9 browser plug-in that enables MSDN and Stack Exchange forum participants to share the pages they visit in association with asking and answering forum questions. For example, askers can list pages they have already investigated, while answerers can list the pages that they found useful in providing their solutions. As part of the research data collection, CiteHistory transmits browsing logs associated with visitation of technical forums. When a person visits MSDN, or a Stack Exchange website, CiteHistory logs the visit to the forum and an obscured representation of the past hour of browsing history. We can analyze only coarse browsing patterns with this data. No data are logged unless a person visits a technical forum.
