Abstract: The Mobile Web promises a new age of anytime, anywhere information access to billions of users across the globe. However, the Mobile Internet represents a challenging information access environment, particularly from a search standpoint. In this paper we present two visual interfaces for improved mobile search. First, we present SearchBrowser, a map-based interface that offers richer end-user interactions by taking into account important mobile contexts including location and time. Second, we consider the social context of mobile search and present Social Search Browser; a proofof-concept interface that incorporates social networking capabilities to improve the search and information discovery experience of mobile subscribers.
