Newfield, Dale, Sethi, Bhupinder Singh and Ryall, Kathy (1998): Scratchpad: Mechanisms for Better Navigation in Directed Web Searching. In: Mynatt, Elizabeth D. and Jacob, Robert J. K. (eds.) Proceedings of the 11th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 01 - 04, 1998, San Francisco, California, United States. pp. 1-8. http://www.acm.org/pubs/articles/proceedings/uist/288392/p1-newfield/p1-newfield.pdf

Current navigation mechanisms for the World Wide Web promote a depth-first search for information on pages in hyperspace. This search strategy frequently results in the unintentional and often undesirable behavior of "web surfing" -- a user starts off in search of some information, but is side-tracked by tangential links. We propose a set of mechanisms based on breadth-first traversal that are better suited for directed searching. We have implemented our ideas as a scratchpad by augmenting an existing browser. Such a system makes web navigation both faster and easier.
