Programmers,

Is there a way I can auto upload my internet browsing history and bookmarks (Favs) onto my website's mysql db so I don't have to do it manually one by one ?
Can php do the job or do I have to look into Javascript ?
If php can do it then what php functions would do the job ? Else, which Javascript function ?


Few yrs back, before del.icio.us was bought by another company, you could auto upload all your bookmarks to your del.icio.us account so that you can later access all your bookmarks on the web from any computer and you did not need to be standing in-front of your home computer to access your bookmarks that you saved on your home computer. I want to build something like that but I don't want the extraction & uploading limited to bookmarks only. Want to extract & upload both bookmarks & browsing history where one script could be for uploading browsing history and the other script for uploading bookmarks.

MySql database
DB Name: links

Tbl Name: bookmarks
Columns: id,date_&_time,username,bookmarked_urls

Tbl Name: browsing_history
Columns: id,date_&_time,username,browsed_urls

I am thinking of providing a link on my page that when clicked it extracts all your browsing history and uploads it to my db.

You are aware that, you can access you browsing history by clicking CTRL H. The urls you see in the browsing history list, these must be auto uploaded.

And, you are aware that, you can access you bookmarks by clicking CTRL B. The urls you see in the bookmarks list, these must be auto uploaded.

This sort of thing would be a huge security risk.

(Wonder how many times I've said that to you, now...)

If you want an automated process, write a browser addon.

Or export to HTML and upload/parse the file.
