abstract

  • 2015 ACM. Today, the Internet is a truly ubiquitous technology. Every day the vast population of Internet-enabled devices and web based platforms grows at an alarming rate; allowing users to consume web content with a considerably diversified experience. Despite this extensive choice in experience, the majority of Internet users access online content through desktop or mobile web browsers. Yet while web browsers have become faster and more powerful over time, growth in the innovation of the underlying browsing methodology has remained relatively stagnant. The Frontier project aims to the enhance the user interface for modern web browsers and introduce new methods for consuming web content. In particular, we seek to develop a user-friendly graph inter- face that improves web browsing in three areas: 1) explicit representation of page relationships, 2) history navigation, and 3) organization of web content. Through the development of our browser extension and user testing, we seek to show that such an interface provides significant improvements over what current browser interfaces offer.
