This research paper presents the design and user evaluation of an add-in software program referred to as Organic Bookmark Management(OBM). This system will complement the Bookmark and History functions by enabling users to navigate more efficiently using organic visual graphical cues. The findings from formative user studies conducted by this research have defined web usage and analysis of web browsing in terms of navigation patterns. Evaluation of the OBM alternative to the normal “hub and spoke” navigation structure of traditional Bookmarks and History functions will be conducted. The main difference between this schema and conventional designs is that it maintains a complete and consistent visual display of previously bookmarked and visited pages based on an organic metaphor. Implementation decisions and present results of usability studies in which we deploy the prototype are discussed. The results show that OBM brings qualitative improvement to the browsing experience of users.
