TouchGraph is a java application of a Google browser that lets you explore the connections between related websites.


"The TouchGraph Google Browser reveals the network of connectivity between websites, as reported by Google’s database of related sites."

Pandia has an in-depth explanation of thie new but not one of a kind brower:-

"Topic clusters

If you let your cursor hover over a result (colored circle) a small box will pop up with the name of the relevant Web site. If you click on that site, the corresponding circle becomes the centre of that cluster, and you will see what other sites are related to that site. Clusters of conceptually related websites (where every site is related to every other site) are given one color. You may change this color if you feel like it. If you turn off your pop up blocker, a click will also open the the home page of the site in question. There are also buttons for changing the number of clusters displayed, filters and much more.

Similar pages

The TouchGraph Google Browser actually uses Google’s Similar Pages function, helping TouchGraph identify network of similar pages on Google. Mutual links can contribute to two pages being identified as similar, but frequent third party mentions of the two web pages together will also mark them as related.

Analyzing one site

You can also enter a URL in a search field in order to analyze the neighborhood of one particular site.

Used as a search tool

If you own a Web site, this is a great tool for exploring your own neighborhood. You will probably find patterns that surprise you: New sites, maybe, that deserve some follow up. TouchGraph argues that you can use it for wide searches: “Follow the data by expanding your search around specific topics, or making the search broader when you don’t know exactly what you are looking for.”

In this respect it works well as a search tool."
