 +===== Abstract =====
 +We introduce a technique for creating novel, enhanced
 +thumbnails of Web pages. These thumbnails combine
 +the advantages of plain thumbnails and text summaries
 +to provide consistent performance on a variety of tasks.
 +We conducted a study in which participants used three
 +different types of summaries (enhanced thumbnails,
 +plain thumbnails, and text summaries) to search Web
 +pages to find several different types of information. Participants
 +took an average of 67, 86, and 95 seconds to
 +find the answer with enhanced thumbnails, plain thumbnails,
 +and text summaries, respectively. As expected,
 +there was a strong effect of question category. For some
 +questions, text summaries outperformed plain thumbnails,
 +while for other questions, plain thumbnails outperformed
 +text summaries. Enhanced thumbnails (which
 +combine the features of text summaries and plain
 +thumbnails) had more consistent performance than either
 +text summaries or plain thumbnails, having for all
 +categories the best performance or performance that
 +was statistically indistinguishable from the best.
