Tapefailure: Web Analytics on Actions

Category: Showcase

Joshua Gross, founder of Tapefailure, let us know about their new launch.

Tapefailure records user actions, which are recorded as tapes, and the users can play back the tapes or view various statistics about them.

You can get access to information such as visual mouse maps, and average tapes.

Tapes are recorded via iframes, and the player itself is built using Prototype.

It seems that tapefailure is screwing up the ajax functions on my site. Am using mootools for ajax.

As for robotreplay. its quite good. and it works for my site.

one notable difference, tapefailure require javascript embed before the end of the page. while robotreplay embeds right at the head section, which is much better. Robotreplay however, requires you to also create a blank text file on ur server, supposely it serves as a cache or a communciation medium.

The reason we require a blank text file (like google sitemaps) is that we want to be sure that the user who registers the domain with RobotReplay also owns the domain. Because we record sensitive user data, we felt this extra precaution was necessary.
