    Abstract

    Parallel browsing is the behavior of concurrently visiting multiple web pages. Modern web browsers use multiple windows and tabs to support different parallel browsing users' tasks. Yet, multiple windows and tabs have significant flaws that hinder users' performance. Our approach attempts to support parallel browsing with an Augmented Reality web browsing environment that mainly relies on Tangible Interaction. To verify our approach, we developed a prototype and carried out a short user-study. In the short user-study, 70% of participants achieved a 21.37% decrease in the time required to complete a comparison task with our prototype. In addition, we found further advantages in flexibility of movement, learning time, and reduced memory load. Finally, we provided a short description about our future direction.
