Helps find visited webpages you forgot to bookmark.

Overview

TrailBlazer is a proof-of-concept browser that solves the problem of getting back to a Web page you've been to before, but didn't have the forethought to bookmark. The current solutions provided by most Web browsers, their history menu, is just a list of titles and Web addresses which aren't memorable enough to be useful.

The actual solution used by most people, is to retrace their own steps through different links until they find they page they are looking for. Our software solution provides the user with a graphical representation of the steps they took from page to page, such that they can simply click to their final destination page.

TrailBlazer was developed by MacWarriors and released at the University of Illinois' Engineering Open House 2004.

No 10.2 support - why?

Agree with the plugin idea, that would indeed be wonderful. The graphic history concept is nice, but in itself it's not worth opening a second browser that does not support tabs or all other features in Safari/Firefox/whatever other full-featured browser of choice. Plus, Trailblazer seems to be using up as much memory/CPU as any of those browsers... Please please, guys, rethink the whole concept and come up with a history browser that fits right in Safari, not a standalone browser like this. It'd have much more appeal.

Yes, definitely would be better as a plugin for safari rather than it's own browser. It'd be much more preferable to have only one browser with many added features by third parties than 500 million web browsers with one desirable new feature.

Exactly. Plus, all these browsers give a headache to web designers because currently they still have different levels of support for CSS, Java, you name it... Adding another one is not going to help, especially if it's not actually a full-featured browser. As far as I've seen, TB seems to display pages with CSS correctly - but for instance it had a problem with a clickable popup window (activated by user, not the nasty popup kind!), it just didn't load, while in Safari, it did load correctly.

I think it would be better as a Safari plugin rather than a whole different browser.

They are using the 10.3 webkit (safari)... hence no 10.2 support. Omniweb gets away with 10.2 support because they are using an older version of webkit with 10.2 support + additional patches installed manually to bring it up to speed with the current webkit.
