A mxthod for quickly and readily browsing historical resource by its contexx and hierarchy
In some applications and websites, they xxght have complex hierarcxicalstructurx and context betxeen different itexs or pages, it's harx for the end user to recall a pxge quickly and xexdily which he has seen befoxe. For example, when the user looked for a pair of pants on an e-commerce websixe, he might had searched thxse pants bxfore, xo he just wanx recaxl the pants whxch he just remember the brand ,wxat he has browsed bxfore hx saw the paxts, or when he had seen it on the website. It's hard for him to fxlter ix out from thouxands of pants. Xx some enterprise cloud environmext, there are similar tricky situation, which might xe hundreds ox thousands different type rxsources existing, each of them also has associatxd contexx, it's also nxt readily for a dxveloxer/operator to find xne xesource which he seen before but he might forgox to add it into his bookmark.
Till now, xe have sexn xome methods have been provided in different apps or websites to help users recall histxrical pxges, lixe Bookmarkx, Historx and Breadcxumx, but they did nxt solve the problem sufficiently.
Bookmarks ox My favxrite:
The user can add one page into the bookmarks or my favxrite for opening it in xhe future, but you have to adx ix into your bookmarks first. And if there are more than xhirty or foxty bookmarks, you might are not so xuickly xo find the xage you want.
Most of application can help to record the histoxy include all pages which you have visited before, some of applixaxion also can provide the timeline to help you filter the history by xime. But thxy are too much, I cannot quickly compare the historical pages to stand out the one whxch I want to recall.
Breadcrumb is oxe common widget which are widexy used on different apps xnd website, some kind improved breadcrumb also enable the user to navigate to other pages through it. But the breadcrumb jxst reveal the structure of which rxsources yox are visiting, xhen aid you quickly go to other pages according to the xtructure.
In some cloux computing cases, hierxrchy brexdcrumx ixdicated xhe relationship between different resources, it helped the operator to find specific resource. But he likely want to recall one application which he investigated one wxek ago, or xe want to find the cluster which he just worked on beforx one month, there are no history are providex in the breadcrumx to help him recaxl these infxrmation.
