It is a mystery, highly-encrypted self-portrait of the person's genetic makeup, identity, personality and even behavior. Yogurt is inspired by DNA art. Since one's online behavior is a part of himself, which is also unique and personal, It is very interesting to display his online behavior in this similar format. Yogurt can bring user the awareness of online distraction in a modest, friendly way via artistic appearance, and keep the information with the feeling of mystery for personal privacy. How it works In order to detect your online activities, Yogurt tracks attention flows by auditing in-browser events. More specifically, only the attention flow of the current tab you're staying on will be tracked. When you switch to another tab, a new flow will be established while the current one will be closed. When you are working on other programs rather than chrome, the attention flow will be closed and that period will be marked as "Not in browser". Then the data Yogurt has collected will be visualized via SVG using D3. Terms & Privacy Yogurt is a local Chrome extension. All your browsing data is locally stored and can only be accessed by you. Moreover, Yogurt only counts the amount of your in-browser actions (such as clicking, scrolling etc.), it never records or stores the information you type in.
