A browser is a window with a subset of elements belonging to the currently opened collection:

When you open a browser it aligns itself to the left along with the element window on the right. This way you can preview individual elements as the selection in the browser changes (only if synchronization button, third from the left, is down).

A browser window is made of the following components:

  • Caption - name of the browser and the number of elements displayed in the browser
  • Toolbar - buttons providing access to the most often used browser operations
  • Element list - list of elements included in the browser with the following columns:
    • Sel - click on this field to select the current entry (e.g. to include it in a newly generated element subset). The selected entry is marked with the plus sign in the Sel column. Selections are useful in processing elements subsets
    • No - number of the element in the browser
    • Title - title of the element
    • Dif - difficulty of the element in percent
    • Reps - number of repetitions of the element (since the beginning of repetitions or since last forgetting)
    • LastRep - the date of the last repetition of the element
    • NextRep - the date of the next repetition of the element
    • Intrv - current interval of the element
    • Laps - number of times the element was forgotten
    • ElNo - physical number of the element in the collection
    • Ord - ordinal number of the given element (e.g. used in sorting the pending queue)(this column is not displayed in the picture above)
    • FI - requested forgetting index of the element (this column is not displayed in the picture above)
    • Type - type of a given element: topic, item or task (see also: Topics vs items)(this column is not displayed in the picture above)

Some of browser fields allow of sorting the browser. Click on the field caption to sort the browser. For example, to sort the browser by last repetition date, click LastRep. The elements in the picture are sorted for Title
