Augmented browsing describes the experience of using a system that can automatically augment or improve the information in web pages. For example, augmented browsing could be used to automatically add definitions for all scientific or technical keywords that occur in a document.
Augmented browsing allows end-users to personalize how they view web documents, and is believed by some academics to be an important emerging technology.
Usage of this term dates back to at least 1997, and is likely to have been derived by analogy to the concept of augmented reality.
