Master's degree project: Non linear browsing history tool

Background

Regular webb-browsers have a history that can be described as linear. Given a position in the history there is at most one back and forward. Consequently, when you backtrace and take a new path you loose history. Furthermore, if you browse to a page already occuring in the history this isn't noted, i.e relevant information that could be used to support a feeling of overview is ignored by the browser. A linear history can easily be presented as a list where the current position is marked somehow. A history that doesn't forget old paths and notes when the same page is visited twice will be a full fledged graph.

The project

We would like to see a graph history tool. Prefferably it should:

Mainly it would work as an navigational help when moving between contextmaps in conzilla. Another possiblity is to make it an applet or plugin to a regular webb-browser. It's important to note that conzilla already have:

Hence using this functionality will save much work and allow the project to reach further. This project will have strong connections to the project power-conzilla, i.e. deciding to revisit one specific path through a history, is with some suitable controlling mechanism, a typical presentation.
