            Abstract

            We introduce activity-aware scrolling (ActiWare Scrolling), an approach that displays live activity on dynamic pages as they happen. ActiWare Scrolling makes use of the intrinsic display feature of the native scrollbar to indicate user interactions outside the current view. We present two versions of this scrollbar: clickable and screening. The screening version displays an indication for the user to scroll to; the clickable version allows the user to click on it for immediate teleportation. Our results show that users are able to save 95% of scrolling mileage and 50.9% in time finding recent activity using the clickable scrollbar - over the native scrollbar. The screening scrollbar also outperformed the native scrollbar with a 54.4% saving in scrolling mileage and a 40.5% saving on time.
