The World Wide Web has brought wide attention from all over the world. It integrates the information from a distributed environment into a global information universe. As the number of web servers and users continues to grow, it is increasingly difficult to find the desired information even though there are many search tools available. In this study, an Intelligent Agent called Cyber Agent is proposed as a data miner to help users search and organize information. The agent attempts to dig out the information from the distributed environment, the World Wide Web, according to the special preferences of each individual. It contains two major subsystems, namely, WebTracer and WebOrganizer. It has the capability of performing tasks such as object decomposition, object representation, approximate string matching, and data clustering. These capabilities enable the agent to dig out and analyze an individual's preferences in surfing the web and then explore more related information for this individual.
