A Method and System for Capturing Relevant Metadata based on User Experience for Enhanced Browser Navigation

Currently, limited means are available for identifying useful metadata from non-useful metadata based on a user's browsing experience. Thus, every page visited by a user is treated with equal importance leading to mining of information that is irrelevant to the user.

Disclosed is a method and system for expanding current browser navigation to capture useful information based on prioritization and categorization of one or more Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) visited by a user. The useful information is stored either locally or remotely and is used in context to the user. The method and system aggregates the information by analyzing user patterns based on user experience and prioritization of one or more URLs. The useful information is used to exploit one or more similar sources of information. Thereafter, the method and system organizes the information based on relevance and provides enhanced browser navigation to the user.

In an implementation, as shown in fig.1 a conventional control, in this case the"Back" navigation button in a browser, is expanded to an in-memory graphic representation such as "hover over". When a user hovers over the "Back" button, the method and system indicates whether and how much a current page was useful.
