Executive Summary

Programmers spend between 60-90% of their time reading and navigating code and other data sources. Programmers form working sets of one or more fragments corresponding to places of interest; with larger code bases, these fragments are scattered across multiple methods in multiple classes. Viewing these fragments concurrently is likely to be beneficial, as it has been shown that concurrent views should be used for tasks in which visual comparisons must be made between parts that have greater complexity than can be held in limited working memory.
