Browsing Large HTML Tables on Small Screens

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors propose new interaction techniques that support better browsing of large HTML tables on small screen devices, such as mobile phones. They propose three modes for browsing tables: Normal mode, record mode, and cell mode. Normal mode renders tables in the ordinary way, but provides various useful functions for browsing large tables, such as hiding unnecessary rows and columns. Record mode regards each row (or column) as the basic information unit and displays it in a record-like format with column (or row) headers, while cell mode regards each cell as the basic unit and displays each cell together with its corresponding row and column headers.
