Surfkollen: What do you know about your online activity?

Surfkollen: What do you know about your online activity? | technologies | Scoop.it

Surfkollen is a Swedish add-on for either Firefox or Chrome. 

John Dalziel's insight:

Surfkollen is a Swedish add-on for either Firefox or Chrome. It analyzes the last 7 days of your online activity, and presents the results on a slick, colourful graph. Surfkollen can only analyze the last 7 days, so the insights you can get from at it at the moment are a bit limited.
However If you’re anything like me, a single week can easily represent your typical surfing habits.
