What Does SiteSurfer Do?
SiteSurfer analyzes a web site or other set of documents, provides
a log of that analysis, and creates a portable Java applet
package suitable for searching and navigating the web site or
document set. SiteSurfer users can create and use indexes on sites
that they visit often, in order to quickly find any desired information
on such sites. SiteSurfer users are also informed of any
web site integrity issues and other problems, so that the problems
can be resolved. While this is reviewed in this documentation
in great detail, we'll highlight some of this here.
