Dataset Details

This dataset is a set of HAR files resulting from the crawl of of 35,000 popular Web sites. The list of Web sites was provided by SimilarWeb (similar to Alexa rank). Each of the 35,000 Web sites has been visited 5 times using Google Chrome, and, for each visit, we built the corresponding HAR file (see spec. at http://www.softwareishard.com/blog/har-12-spec/), containing details of all the HTTP transactions performed to render the page. The dataset is divided in European and Extra-European archives. The file 'eu.zip' includes HARs of Web sites popular in Europe; the file 'extra_eu.zip' includes HARs of Web sites popular in U.S.A., Brazil, Russia and Australia. Interesting information can be derived analyzing 'Cookie' and 'Set-Cookie' headers. Crawling was performed during spring 2017.
