Abstract

The Internet consists of several billion documents. Choosing information from such a great number of Web pages is not easy. We do not think that the interfaces of traditional search engines that divide search results into dozens of pages regardless of genre and display the results as a text-based list are necessarily useful. We propose an interface that helps the user to intuitively understand the entire Web search result and to gather information. Our system analyzes and classifies Web search results and presents the classification results to the user on one screen.
