  Wired 4.05: Caught Browsing Again   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Browsing is an obvious idea, but it is not necessarily the right one.
Browsing is better suited to the confines of a doctor's waiting room, an airplane seat, or a rainy Sunday afternoon.
The verb browse is derived from the behavior of hungry animals who, in winter when pasture is barren, forage for tender shoots and the buds of trees and bushes.

 Chapter 6: Browsing: A Multidimensional Framework   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Browsing room: a room or section in a library designed to allow patrons an opportunity to freely examine and browse in a collection of books.
First, browsing is not limited to information seeking at library shelves or information system retrieval but appears in a wide variety of human domains.
Although a clear taxonomy of browsing has yet to emerge, the inherent richness and complexity of browsing will require researchers to be more specific and explicit in their definitions, measurements, and evaluations of searching and browsing.

 Using the NetBIOS Browsing Console to Troubleshoot NetBIOS Browsing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The way that Browsing works in a workgroup is slightly different from that in a domain, and the approach that you take for troubleshooting is going to be slightly different as well.
You can architect your own browsing infrastructure and that way when things go wrong with it, you already know the systems that should be involved in browsing on those subjects, and it makes it very easy to maintain and troubleshoot in that type of scenario.
So when requests for a browse list come to that machine, the client may or may not be returned in the browse list — it depends on which interface the request was received on.

 Browsing at the State Library of Victoria
Browsing is a useful way to find general information on a topic, or to locate resources to provide a starting point for your research.
In the process of browsing, you can learn more about a subject area and decide what it is you are really looking for.
However browsing can become time consuming and does not necessarily allow you to locate specific items or yield the most relevant materials on your research.

 Voice Browsing: How Two Great Ideas Go Great Together
Financially, voice browsing makes great sense for companies, as it costs around a dollar a minute for human operators to interact with customers but only around 10 cents a minute for an automated system.
Corporate use of voice browsing is primarily used at banks and airlines.
The most fun I had with voice browsing was calling Phillips Speech Processing center and talking to their browser which did not recognize the words, "Public Relations," "Media Relations," or "Press." Finally, I asked for the operator.

 VPN Slow browsing
To make browsing faster, i had to delete the 'network place' i had set up, and manually browse to the location each time i need it.
These are server volumes that i used to connect to directly before i moved and started using VPN, so it's nothing about the volume or contents or number of icons or whatever.
Since browsing directly instead of via network place is fast, it's not anything like encryption.

 Ali Alvi's WebLog : Tabbed Browsing in IE vs Other features   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Somewhere in one of my posts, someone mentioned Tabbed Browsing and what is stopping the IE team from putting tabs in their browser.
The only reason why IE is getting dumped now really is for tabbed browsing for the geeks and because it won't let you install toolbars and spyware at all, no choice at all, because it just doesn't work.
Tabbed browsing tops my list as it is awfully convenient when doing research on multiple items without having tons of windows open.

Sometimes when you browse a Web page, a dialogue box will appear asking you if you wish to load a particular plug-in into the browser such as Macromedia’s Flash or Real Network’s streaming media program Real Player G2.
One of the best ways to work quickly while browsing is to take advantage of the right mouse button.
Holding down one of these keys in combination with certain letter keys is a great shortcut for menu commands in a browser.

RFC Viewer is a powerful RFC browsing utility for networking program and protocol developers.
Previously, when develop a network protocol program, you have to browse the RFC documents for reference with notepad or other common editors through the whole developing period.
It is hard to browse content with sections, because an original RFC document is pure text under common text editors.

Collaborative browsing (also known as co-browsing) is a software-enabled technique that allows someone in an enterprise contact center to interact with a customer by using the customer's Web browser to show them something.
For example, a B2B customer having difficulty placing an order could call a customer service representative who could then show the customer how to use the ordering pages as though the customer were using their own mouse and keyboard.
Collaborative browsing can include e-mail, fax, regular telephone, and Internet phone contact as part of an interaction.

Browser service, which is the User-mode portion responsible for maintaining the browse list, remotely making API calls, and managing the various roles a browser can have.
In a LAN environment using any protocol or combination of protocols, all Microsoft networking browsing activities are maintained using broadcasts and special NetBIOS names that identify the type of resource.
All browsing services are provided on a per-protocol basis to prevent, for example, a NetBEUI-only client from enumerating a TCP/IP-only server in the process of querying the browser.

 IEBlog : IE7 Tabbed Browsing Implementation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Adding Tabs to IE The biggest challenge of implementing tabbed browsing is that IE was originally written as a single-window browser, and many of its features were designed around this assumption.
For example, if part of my daily routine involved browsing news.google.com, weather.com and msdn.microsoft.com every morning, then it would be very helpful to define this collection of tabs as "Morning Websites" and then click a single node in the Favorites list to open them all simultaneously.
I use Firefox and agree tabbed browsing, together with RSS is the way to go, but with tabs in Firefox, once you have added the site title it can't be changed.

 Think Secret - Safari to get tabbed browsing (with images)
New pre-release betas that are being tested include this capability, one of the most anticipated additions to the popular upstart browser.
The lack of tabbed browsing is one of the few complaints that users have had about Safari, but Chimera's founding programmer, David Hyatt, is a lead Safari developer at Apple, so the addition of this feature is no great surprise.
In beta 62 of Safari, which has yet to be posted for download, tabbed browsing can be activated via the hidden debug menu.

 PCWorld.com - Google Goes Browsing By Name
With the new Browse By Name feature, users of the Google's Toolbar can, for example, type "Grand Canyon" into their Internet Explorer browser window and land on the Grand Canyon homepage without having to type the somewhat cumbersome www.nps.gov/grca/ URL for the national park.
Using the browser window as a convenient search bar may not always be the approach when searching for general terms, however, because the most specific or obvious destinations tend to appear first.
A spokesperson for the company in London says that it would take a few days for the update to be delivered to all toolbar users, and recommends that users hungry for the new feature uninstall their toolbar and reinstall the updated version for Google's site.

 ``What's Related?'' Everything But Your Privacy
The logs of this data, when used in conjunction with cookies, could be used to build extensive dossiers of individual web users, even including their names, addresses, and telephone numbers in some cases.
By forcing the level of granularity on a cookie's domain, the user has the ability to give certain information to a vendor he might trust more without having to worry about that being stored in a cookie that could then be used by a different vendor, one that the user trusts less.
This can certainly become the most complete database of web users and their browsing habits in very short order, and likely completely without the knowledge of the users involved.

 The Design of Browsing and Berrypicking Techniques
The view of searching as frequently being an evolving/berrypicking process, and one which uses a variety of types of information sources and search techniques, changes our sense of what browsing capabilities should be like in online systems, and how the database and the search interface should be designed.
Footnote chasing:  In footnote chasing one might want both to be able to browse through the article or book that generates the references as well as through the list of references--in fact, to move back and forth easily between the two parts of the document.
This may be particular useful at the beginning of a search, when the user could see a physical representation of an imaginary library on the screen.  The searcher might then be reminded of whole classes of resource which they might otherwise forget.
