Executive Summary

For a place that gathers millions of people the Web seems pretty lonely at times. This is mainly due to the current predominant browsing scenario; that of an individual participating in an autonomous surfing session. The authors believe that people should be seen as an integral part of the browsing and searching activity towards a concept known as social navigation. In this work, they extend the typical web browser's functionality so as to raise awareness of other people having similar web surfing goals at the current moment. They further present features and algorithms that facilitate online communication and collaboration towards common searching targets.
