Recently,various techniques for and approaches to extending usability testing beyond the traditional laboratories and technologies have emerged. Remote usability testing allows researchers to evaluate the usability of websites by gathering information from remote users. Several different approaches have been proposed, but they often require that the user perform particular installations or configurations. We introduce OpenWebSurvey, a software system for remote usability testing that can remotely record users' behavior while they surf the Internet and that requires no program installation or configuration.
