This is a demonstration application which filters DOM elements by the rate at which they are changing (as described in this paper). They have been compiled for java 1.6 (though you should be able to recompile for an earlier version if necessary). When the application starts the sliders will be set to a range that is approximately the peak revisitation period for this page. You can feel free to move the sliders around to see what the page would look like when filtered for other rates.
You have two options for running them:Running as an applet
Simply load click on any of the html files:
* The costco page was only collected for a week so not all elements have changed.
Things that should be blocked off are not in this dataset.
* The costco page was only collected for a week so not all elements have changed. Things that should be blocked off are not in this dataset.
