Abstract [en]

Each day the web is becoming more and more mobile friendly, and users use smartphones and tablets to do errands on the web now more than ever. In the race towards becoming more mobile friendly, some elements are lagging behind and need more attention in order to catch up the rest of the web. One of these elements is a large table. When a table with large amounts of data is to be shown on a small screen today, many different techniques exist. Showing the entire table or removing information from the table are just two examples. In scenarios where the table content should be readable without removing any information, very few solutions exist that have a high usability. In this project, a prototype has been developed with the hope of offering a way to show large tables on small screens with a usability that is higher than what has been achieved on the web so far.
