Online Java Tool Shows Websites as Graphs


Tuesday, May 30, 2006; 02:18 AM

A new web application can help webmasters and web developers to get an intuitive overview of any website's structure.  The first step in using the Java tool is entering an URL, and then it displays a color-coded graph of the site.  Different colors represent the different HTML tags (red for tables, blue for links, green for divs, yellow for forms) that sites uses to lay out your content.

A comprehensive introduction to Websites as Graphs is available at http://www.aharef.info/2006/05/websites_as_graphs.htm .  The author of the application compares the graphs of several popular sites and explains how the colors and structure should be read.  Additionally, a page has been set up on Flickr with graphs submitted by the public.
