The DeckScape Web Browser

Video demonstration from the 1996 CHI conference. This video shows DeckScape, an experimental World-Wide Web browser. DeckScape uses the metaphor of a deck of playing cards, where each card is a Web page, and each deck is displayed in its own window. As the user traverses links, new pages appear on top of the deck. Users can circulate through the pages in a deck, move and copy pages between decks, and so on. The primary contributions of DeckScape are ÒawayÓ pages and a general-purpose way to organize Web pages such as hotlists, page expansions, and query results. named ÒHotList,Ó and any page can be copied into that deck with a mouse click.
