A method to quickly locate content on a webpage

Sometimes, users find it inconvenient to quickly locate desired content on a web page, especially for long web pages. For example, a user wants to buy an article, and he accesses an online shopping store. On the page of the article, there might list a bunch of details introducing the article, but the user just wants to view the article images. With known solutions, the user can only scroll down and down until he finds the images.

This invention addresses the above problem. It provides an alternative method to quickly locate content on a web page. This benefits users from spending less time looking for the desired information on a web page

This invention introduces a method to quickly locate content on a web page. There are two modes involved:
a. Manual mode
b. Automatic mode


1.1 Manual mode

If the manual mode is in effect, the user invokes the web page navigation using gestures.

A small sized web page showing whole content appears.

We define small sized web page as follows in different situations:
1. An equal scaled in web page based on the original web page
2. A scaled in web page only showing featured element types
Note: Throughout this article, we also call the small sized web page as navigation page.
