Abstract: Many people have recently become interested in Web 2.0, which is a new Web service concept. Web sites have become sources of information and functionality that enables users to create new content of their own. Using this capability, users have been customizing Web pages as they like. Users are now looking for more versatile browsers that will enable them to edit and display content based on their own creative concepts and preferences. Motivated by this demand, we have been working on a project to develop a state-transition diagram-based Web browser programming scheme that supports participatory Web use and enables the end-user to interact with Web content. We implemented a prototype of our scheme called GUEST. Using GUEST, users can define behaviors of a Web browser easily even if they have no programming experience. However, there are parts of the scheme that are not easy for beginners to use. That is, there are complicated user interfaces that prevent the user from easily gaining an intuitive understanding of how to use GUEST. Therefore, in this paper, we focus on users’ difficulties in using the interface, and introduce a new concept of the design. (More)
