Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Conventional web browsing displays a web page inside of a window. In conventional web browsing, following a link replaces the previous document entirely, and the readers tend to lose the context. We have developed a system inlineLink, which applies an in-line, expansion-link method to web browsing. This in-line expansion inserts the linked document after the link anchor text The inlineLink provides navigation mechanisms such as automatic animated scrolling, zooming, and index jumping in order to reduce the scrolling tasks while handling longer, inlined documents. We have adopted Dynamic HTML to implement the inline expansion functions. Casual users can try them on conventional web browsers. The results of our experiment prove the advantages of inlineLink in both click counts and mouse movement.
