Abstract The Transparent Video Facetop is a novel user interface concept that supports not only single-user interactions with a PC, but also close pair collaborations, such as that found in collaborative Web browsing, in distributed pair programming and in distributed extreme programming (dPP/dXP). We recently demonstrated the Vis-a-Vid facetop prototype as a single-user GUI for manipulating the elements of a traditional WIMP desktop [21]. In this paper we show how the single-user transparent video facetop can be used for fingertip control of a Web browser, and how a dual-head facetop can be used for paired synchronous (collaborative) Web browsing. The facetop is not a new browser, per se, but rather a novel way to interact with a Web brower, as well as a novel means of providing visual interaction among users collaboratively browsing the Web.
