World Wide Web is growing rapidly in recent years. User's experience on the internet can be improved by minimizing user's web access latency. This can be done by predicting the next step taken by user towards the accessing of web page in advance, so that the predicted web page can be prefetched and cached. So to improve the quality of web services, it is required to analyze the user web navigation behavior. Analysis of user web navigation behavior is achieved through modeling web navigation history. Markov model is widely used to model the user web navigation sessions.
