Described is a mechanism for dependably managing web synchronization and tracking operations among multiple consumer browsers. A session is created for each of one of the consumer browsers when an individual consumer downloads an initial web page from an HTTP server. A unique ID is assigned to that session. After the session has been created for an individual browser, the information about all activities from that consumer browser will be recorded into the session. Such a mechanism overcomes the difficulty to organize and manage the activities from the multiple consumer browsers that are stateless in nature. An administration browser can select any one of the sessions created, display the activities previously performed in that session, and conduct bi-direction synchronization with the consumer browser associated with the selected session.
