Our research focuses on web information management for people who want to monitor and use the World Wide Web information, as their information resource. Web information is mainly open to the public and search engines are widely used, although there are complaints about the large amount of irrelevant information. Some web technology research focuses on promptness of changed information and relevance to users. Most web search engines do not fully satisfy these two requirements in general because they try to cover all web sites and users together. The aim of Web monitoring research is to overcome these problems. Web monitoring systems check predefined web pages and prompt users when there are changes in these pages. This research focuses on the management of newly uploaded information in target web sites. In a web monitoring system, the system should cover various different types of web pages, as well as personal aspects. This system achieves these tasks by integrating the first and third modules. In addition to web monitoring functions, the second module provides the information management functionality in the user’s local storage.
