Surveys highlight that Internet users are frequently frustrated by failing to locate useful information, and by difficulty in browsing anarchically linked Web structures. We present a new Internet browsing application (called VR-net) that addresses these problems. It first identifies semantic domains consisting of tightly interconnected Web-page groupings. Then it populates a 3D virtual world with these information sources, representing all relevant pages plus appropriate structural relations. Users can then easily browse through and around a semantically focused virtual library.
