Four hierarchy browsers were compared in a counterbalanced repeated measures study with 32 test users. The four browsers tested were in-house implementations of 1) a Windows Explorer style tree view, 2) an information pyramids browser, 3) a treemap browser, and 4 ) a hyperbolic browser. Each user performed eight tasks with each browser. Task completion time, subjective ratings, and overall preference data were collected. Almost no significant differences in performance were found, but users… CONTINUE READING
