Abstract

We describe an ongoing research effort in designing synchronous collaborative navigational techniques on the WWW. The goal of the research program is to provide usable tools to collaboratively search information on the WWW. We begin by studying collaborative navigational techniques in the search results space defined by a WWW search engine. We first present our design method. We then characterize four types of collaborative navigation that are embedded in the current prototype, Co-Vitesse.
