Description/Abstract

Task analysis of how users collect information from within Web pages indicates that while capturing information within-Web-page is a common task, it is not a frequent one. Tool support for this interaction is poor: users must move between browsers for copying and editors for pasting content They must also name the components captured and remember to copy and add the URL from the source. These subtasks force users away from their primary focus of information gathering and into information management. Hunter Gatherer is a browser-based tool designed to address the specific problems of forced divided attention in information gathering smaller-than-Web-page sized components.
