The Relation Browser (RB) is a tool developed by the Interaction Design Lab
in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill .

The RB is designed to help users understand relationships between items in a collection and to support exploration of an information space (e.g., a set of documents or webpages).

RB07 demos require Windows with either Firefox 3 or IE 7 and Java 6.
RB++ and earlier should work with Macs, PCs, and Linux with Java.

The Relation Browser is implemented as a Java Applet that can be embedded in a web page. It provides a dynamic user interface that allows easy exploration of the data through the use of faceted and keyword search.
