ACM UIST 1997 - Supporting coopoerative and personal surfing with a desktop assistant

We motivate the use of desktop assistants in the context of web surfing and show how such a tool may be used to support activities in both cooperative and personal surfing. By cooperative surfing we mean surfing by a community of user who choose to cooperatively and asynchronously build up knowledge structures relevant to their group. Specifically, we describe the design of an assistant called Vistarbar, which lives on the Window desktop and operates on the currently active we browser. We present rationale for the assistant's design describe roles it could play to support efficient implementation strategies where appropriate.
