A Web browser is an essential application program for accessing the Internet. If a suspect uses the Internet as a source of information, the evidence related to the crime would be saved in the log file of the Web browser. Therefore, investigating the Web browser's log file can help to collect information relevant to the case. After considering existing research and tools, this paper suggests a new evidence collection and analysis methodology and tool to aid this process.
