WeBrowse is the first passive crowdsource-based content curation system. Content curation is the act of assisting users to identify relevant and interesting content in the Internet. WeBrowse requires no active user engagement to promote content. Instead, it extracts the URLs users visit from traffic traversing an ISP network to identify popular content. WeBrowse contains a set of heuristics to identify the set of URLs users visit and to select the subset that are interesting to users  [7] . The system proposes the interesting content in a web page available to all users.
