Web beacon to me looks like a way to track user’s behavior on a site, is there anything more to it?

 Hello Friends,

A Web beacon is an object that is embedded in a Web page or e-mail and is usually invisible to the user but allows checking that a user has viewed the page or e-mail. Alternative names are Web bug, tracking bug, pixel tag, and clear gif.

Thanks and Regards
