My employer wishes to track the web surfing of a particular employee - mainly to see how much time is devoted during the day to non-work related web activity. Is there a way to log the time spent on the web and what the person is looking at?

P.S. This person uses Opera as their browser

You would have to install a 3rd party software to do this.

I found this on google:

There are lots of programs out there that will monitor different web use, etc. Just do a google search.

You can view the history in the browser to see what they have visited, but this won't tell you how long they were at each site.
