Abstract [en]

There are several applications which make it possible for users to search and find their favorite channels; these channels could be anything such as TV channels, radio channels, blogs, websites, etc. Is a graph-based interface more efficient than a traditional one for channel discovery? The aim of this thesis is to answer the question by developing a new browsing method in a graphical user-friendly interface and compare it with a traditional hierarchical method. A graphical application is a graph-based application, in which the nodes (or vertices) represent channels and the edges represent the links among channels. The graphical application is built with the newest Hypertext Markup Language Standard (HTML5) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS3). A large part of the graphical application is built using the JavaScript library Sigma.js. The resulting graphical application is tested with users and compared with the traditional hierarchical user interface. A questionnaire is provided for end-users to gather feedback. After analyzing the participant‟s feedback, the results were surprising and interesting. A majority of participants enjoyed interacting with graphical application, and they were interested to use it in the future. The final result is merged into the thesis report. This thesis includes all the work of creating graphical and hierarchical user interfaces, testing the hierarchical and graphical user interfaces, and analyzing the user‟s feedback.
