Current search engines do a poor job of supporting different search strategies and styles; in particular they offer little support for exploration. Elroy encourages exploratory search by providing better tools for navigating result sets using a semantic fisheye technique, better support for going back to previous states of work by incorporating search history, and a dynamically updating set of visible options constantly offering suggested new directions for users to pursue.

Elroy was presented at a Workshop for Exploratory Search at the Conference for Human Computer Interaction, 2007.
