SurfSerf - A User's Guide
The Menu
    SurfSerf menu is pretty standard: a File option for saving and loading surf sessions, a Windows options for showing the various associated windows (the history list, for instance), and a Help option.  One choice is perhaps not so familiar: the Merge choice under the File pulldown menu.  You can use this option to merge two surf sessions together.  The session is rooted at the currently selected node.  You can always prune the new graph. 
The Toolbar
    SurfSerf's toolbar offers an interface for interacting with the graph SurfSerf constructs for you.  The table, below, describes briefly, each button and what they do. 
* Slide the graph around
* Zoom in on the graph
* Center the selected node
* Show only the links in the original surf path
* Show links taken to reach the selected node
* Show links taken from the selected node
  Mark a node for deletion
  Delete all marked nodes
  Go into node deletion mode
* Show currently selected node in the browser
* Re-connect SurfSerf to the (re-started) browser
* Shrink SurfSerf to conserve desktop space

The Edit Fields
    There are two text editing fields in SurfSerf.  The first is the name field: 
SurfSerf creates a name for each page you visit with your browser.  Oftentimes, sites do not have titles and the URL is difficult to read.  SurfSerf tries to do a good job in creating the name but allows you to change it to whatever you like.  Names do not have to be unique and you can search for nodes by name. 
    The second is the notes field: 
Each node has an associated annotation box.  You can write anything you like - the text is not limited by the window size. 
The History List Window
    This feature is not available in the preview version of SurfSerf.
The Search Window
    This feature is not available in the preview version of SurfSerf.
