A display method of modification information and page contents of a Web page in a bookmark

Disclosed is a system for automatically detecting modification of a Web page, storing the updated Web page contents in a local storage, updating the bookmark information of a Web browser, and displaying bookmark entries of multiple versions of a Web page. The system enables a user to see bookmark entries of the older versions of a Web page and to access the older versions even when the Web page is modified or deleted in a Web server.

Fig. 1 shows the bookmark display of the system. The system uses hierarchical display of the bookmark entries. The first level entry (1) shows a title and original URL of a Web page. The second level entry (2) shows multiple versions of the Web page. "Access Date" is the date when the Web page is registered into the bookmark or the date when the Web page is modified. "Action" explains what action the system took at the "Access Date." "Location" shows where the Web page contents reside. "URL" shows the detailed location of the Web page contents. When a user selects one of the second level entries, a Web browser (3) displays the version of the Web page.
