From XEROX Palo Alto Research Center:


The Palo Alto Research Center is pleased to announce the release of Popout Prism, an experimental Web browser that will be presented at CHI 2002.  Popout Prism currently runs on Microsoft Windows platforms, and is available under an alphaWorks-style license at: http://www.alphaave.com/details.php?tech=Popout%20Prism.

Popout Prism makes critical information "pop out" from Web pages and shows enhanced thumbnail overviews of Web pages.  When users enter keywords, Popout Prism enhances the display of those keywords throughout the current Web page as well as in a thumbnail overview of the entire document.  The enhancements are designed to attract the users' attention, using principles from PARC visual attention research.

We wanted to give people a chance to try out Popout Prism before the CHI talk, and we would be delighted to receive feedback on this software from the CHI community.  In the future, we may release a  toolkit for generating enhanced thumbnails.  If you are interested in being a pilot user for such a toolkit, please send a note to popoutprism-support@parc.com.
