When dealing with hundred of bookmarks it becomes difficult to properly choose the folder for archiving the bookmark and find it back when needed again.

Smart bookmark organizer

Our proposal aims to associate to each bookmark a smart set of metadata in order to improve the user experience when saving a bookmark or when searching it . If the user bookmarks a web page, the application leverages the metadata to suggest the most appropriate folder to store it . If the user searches back a folder, the application matches the search criteria against the metadata.

We identify four groups of metadata that the application can associate to the web page:

the search criteria entered in the search engine by the user1. the static metadata associated to the web page2. the result of a cognitive analysis of the web page3. if the user has reached the page by navigating through a set of web links , the 4. description of each link clicked on during the navigation

This metadata is temporarily collected by the browser application during the user navigation (see Figure 1 for a representation of this flow). If the user starts a new search or or if he types a new url , the application resets the metadata. If on the contrary the user decides to bookmark a web link , the application processes the metadata: it associates to each key a different weight basing on how it was collected and how frequently it recurred and it proposes the most weighted keys to the user as possible name for the folder (see Figure 2 for a representation of this processing).

For example the user enters in the search engine the keywords "blueberry recipe". The search engine pro...
