A Study of Navigation Support Tools for Mobile Devices

In this research, the effectiveness of two navigation support tools, history lists and overview diagrams is studied and compared. There are four levels in the independent variable: history lists and overview diagrams, only history lists, only overview diagrams, and none. The results showed that the browsing performance (performance time, step, satisfaction, and orientation) of mobile users who were provided with at least one type of navigation support tools was better than the browsing performance of mobile device users without such navigation support tools. Also, users who were provided with both history lists and overview diagrams, and only overview diagrams were less oriented than the mobile device users who were provided with only history lists.
