tracking time on task - web app

I'm working with a team where we want to be able to show improvement, decreased time on task, after we re-design the UI. I want to track time on task for a web based application. Has anyone captured time on task, and possibly click and scroll data from a particular web app? How do you pull the data for that app out of all of the other web related work that person may be doing?


Thanks for your insights,

Scrollbar Down Button and Shift Direction

I have an interesting observation on the scrolling behaviour in the
iTunes Store Featured Product box. When you click on the DOWN arrow,
it will shift the content down instead of up. The commonly
anticipated behaviour should be shifting up to reveal more content
below the fold. I posted a screen capture on my blog for better

My question is: is it just me, or it is a real annoyance for most
users? Is there a valid argument to support such design pattern?

iPod Scroll Wheel

I've been watching my younger brother play with his iPod for the first
time and it's got me thinking about Apple's move from a mechanical
scroll wheel to a solid-state touch wheel on the 2nd generation iPod,
and wondering whether they needed to start with the mechanical scroll
wheel to "teach" people the concept of the circular movement? Or was it
more likely a matter of technology/price not being where they needed to
be to go with a solid-state touch wheel from the beginning?

Anyone know of any links to analysis or interviews that speak to that
