Zoetrope: Web Browsing Through Time

Zoetrope: Web Browsing Through Time
Christine Huang
  • 9 december 2008

Projects like the Internet Archive let web users visit old versions and archives of websites via url search, but a new service called Zoetrope will offer new, interactive ways to “browse backward” through time. Developed by research scientist Mira Dontcheva of Adobe Systems, the soon to be released tool offers visual browsing with a click and drag scrollbar, moving the user backward and forward through time by hours, days, or months. Specific details and pieces of data (i.e., the price of a toy on Amazon.com) can also be zoomed in on by placing a cursor “lens” over that area of the webpage to see how it has changed over time.
