"carpet" of bookmarks and sessions ("inside" tabs and windows)

This may be purely linguistical, but what are exactly sessions? This is one
of the features in which Opera was unique. Each session is a group of web
pages, it can be auto-saved (useful after a crash and for consistency of
information) or it can be saved by users. But looking at it, why is a
session different from a group of webpages inside a "carpet" of the
bookmarks library? Isn't that redundant?

Firefox has a feature that (as of this writting) isn't implemented in Opera:
save all open webpages (the tabs in a window). Isn't this basically the same
as saving a session?

answers are just...well, guesses.

mobile UI pattern library: the wiki

We'd like your participation!

Little Springs Design has posted a wiki containing the pattern library
in my new book, Designing the Mobile User Experience. So far, it's
got around 10 patterns posted, with more to come in the next few
weeks.

http://patterns.littlespringsdesign.com

If you are designing a mobile application, check out the library. Use
what you find.

If you are an experienced designer, go ahead and get an account.
Modify the site. Add to it. Repost it elsewhere (according to the
liberal license).

HCI software tools/applications

Hi All,

Can anyone please point me to some exhaustive resources that list various
HCI software tools available for the following categories: a) user task
gathering and analysis, b) UI interface development, and c) usability
testing/evaluation on interfaces? For example: DENIM/SILK can be used for
quick prototyping http://dub.washington.edu/denim/research/, TechSmith's
Morae can be used for in-lab usability testing
http://www.techsmith.com/morae.asp etc.

Thanks,
Oliver
