Abstract

Current commercial web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer attempt to make it easier for users to return to previously visited web pages. They offer several important facilities for doing this, with the major ones being the Back button, the history list, and bookmarks. However, these facilities are often unintegrated. We are currently developing our prototype system that works within Microsoft Internet Explorer. The unifying principle of this prototype is that all visited pages are organized as a recency-ordered history list, with duplicate pages shown only in their latest position.
