Essay

The program 'trails' is an add-on to the Firefox browser, making it possible for texts and images that are found on the internet to be archived in a manageable and easily retrievable way. The tool makes it possible for search results to be assembled into small book pages, which can be printed out and filed as required. The transformation of graphic and textual data from the liquid medium of the internet into the static medium of paper provides visible 'reading trails' which can be retraced at any time.

Comment by the nominators:
This program counters the difficulty of archiving online search results in a manageable way. It is an intelligent and user-friendly tool for the analog documentation and presentation of search results from the internet.
