RobotReplay a cool way to track mouse movement

Written by on April 22, 2007

Darren Barefoot pointed me towards RobotReplay - yet another tool to measure how people are using your website.

But, this one is actually quite clever. It records the mouse movement for specific sessions allowing you to see exactly how people navigate through your site.

Here is a video of how it works.

Note: RobotReplay have had a lot of startup problem and they have made a number of improvements and changes since it was launched. One thing I do not like is that they no longer record every session, but only "only about one in three sessions are actually recorded". This pretty much eliminates it as a tool for monitored usability testing. Update: I am told that this is only a temporary fix (read the comment from Andre below)

Anyway, I am going to play with this later this summer.
