Research on Hypermedia Browsers and Suggestions for Future Research.
Story, William B., Jr.; Harvey, Francis A.
Browsing tools have been developed to help users make effective use of the large amounts of information in hypermedia applications, aiding the user both in orientation (Where am I in the collection of information contained in the hypermedia application?) and in navigation (How do I get to another specific piece of information?). There are few formal research studies on how users actually utilize browsers in hypermedia. This paper describes current research on browsing tools and the types of browsers currently in use; describes why they are needed; and suggests additional research that might lead to the design of more effective browsing tools.
