Question 1:
Can a "Browser" be written so that a Network/Security Admin could "check"
on the User?
 	Check one is the Time the user started a session.
 	Check two is the IP the user requests
 	Check three is lenght of "surf" time.
        Check four did user "save to disk" any GIFS\JPG.
	Check five is end of session.
<see where I am going with this?>

Question 2:
Can the browser be written to limit time <such as in a timer>?			

Question 3:
Can the browser output this information into a log file or could the browser
be configured to start up an internal "homepage" and the information be 
captured at this point?

Last question? 
What would be a recommended program language for this task, <if it can be 
done at all>.
