Content-aware layout
We describe content-aware layout (CAL), a technique that automatically arranges windows on a user's desktop. Unlike conventional window managers that automatically cascade or tile each window without regard to its content, CAL uses information about the contents of windows to help decide if and where they should be placed. We present the approach to designing CAL, as well as its implementation. We then conclude with a discussion about future work and CAL's potential use in large display environments. Keywords Layout, content-aware, window manager, transparency, scrolling, fisheye ACM Classification H.5.2. Information interfaces and presentation: User Interfaces--Graphical user interfaces (GUI), Interaction styles, Screen design, Windowing systems
