Method and system to link pages

Today people are using bookmarks to save important links, or use a rich text editor to save important links. It is painful to maintain and use, especially when there are a lot of links to be bookmarked. Navigating from one linked page to another is controlled by the page which can not be changed by viewer of the page. It is painful for people to re-visit the same set of pages for a specific purpose after the workis interruppted and resumed.

Another pain is that when user are navigate pages and doesn't bookmark them in time, it is hard for user to get back some important pages. Search though browser's history is painful.

This invention defines a system which allows user to associate page links in the way he/she prefer. And associated links will be present when user navigate one of the page.

Known Solution:
Users could use bookmark to store all links locally. Each time when they start the work, they can explore the bookmarks to findlinks they need. Drawbacks:
The known solution can't help user associate links directly. When users start some work, they need time to explore all links tofind the one they need which is additional time cost, especially when users have long bookmarks.

The invention provides a system so that users can add useful links to user-defined link sets in which links can be associated with each other. The system provides a monitor to detect what page user is exploring and decide what link set will shows up for user's reference. It will save users lots of time by going to target reference link directly without navigating in many web pages again.

There is also an apparatus called "Interested Path"to help user to remember the links/...
