A web browser of a limited size has difficulty in expressing on a screen information about goods like an Internet shopping mall. Page scrolling is used to overcome such a limitation in expression. For a web page using page scrolling, it is impossible to use click-stream based analysis in analyzing interest for each area by page scrolling. In this study, a web-using mining system is presented, designed, and implemented using page scrolling to track the position of the scroll bar and movements of the window cursor regularly within a window browser for real-time transfer to a mining server and to analyze user’s interest by using information received from the analysis of the visual perception area of the web page.
