Abstract

The Semantic Web is an extension of the current Web where information is represented in a machine processable way. It is not separate from the current Web and one of the confusions that novice users might have is where the SemanticWeb is. In fact, users can easily encounter RDF documents that are components of the Semantic Web while they navigate among Web pages. In addition, the number of RDF documents on theWeb is ever-increasing and a lot of educational materials in RDF format become available on the Web. In this paper, we propose a simple Semantic Web browser by which non-expert users such as secondary school students who do not know technical details about the Semantic Web can browse through HTML documents and RDF documents.
