Hi, and thanks for the interesting question.
I hope I can offer some solutions to your problem - here are some
1. Click on "history", click the "view" button, and change to "order
visited today". This shows you the pages you have linked recently in
order, which could be of use.
2. You can try this program:
"The purpose of WebTree is to display the links between visited Web
pages. WebTree does this by monitoring your browser's cache and
dynamically building a Windows Explorerlike tree structure. By
bookmarking and structuring your pathway through the Web, WebTree
enables you to quickly and easily find your way back to pages of
interest. More complex than Back, Forward, or Go, it lets you navigate
the Web with more precision."
3. This may be impractical, but I often use the CONTROL N function to
open a new page when I find a good source. This opens the source into
a new window that I can leave in the background, and the new window
maintains the same back and forward history. This way, you can come
back to the information you originally found, and still browse with
back and forward.
4. Try this program:
"UltiMark is a URL management and Web navigation tool. It takes the
unique approach of allowing you to separate your bookmarks into two
categories: temporary and permanent. Its features include password and
ID storage, a searchable database, hot key control, and browser
independence. In addition, it is multiuser ready. UltiMark can help
you to surf faster with less frustration. Version 2.2 features an
Explorer-like interface, a favorites/bookmarks import tool, and
numerous other enhancements. This is a 30-day fully functional trial
version. The registered version can be purchased for $17.50."
I hope this helps your problem, and if you are still unhappy, need any
clarification at all, or need more suggestions, please feel free to

Here is another program that may be of use:
"SurfVCR records your Web surfing and plays it back. It remembers
everything you've done on the Web page , what you entered and what you
selected .The import / export option lets You send your records to
friends . An additional option lets You generate executable file that
will perform recorded actions. You will be able to invoke it using the
button 'SurfVCR' on your I.E. 5.0 toolbar.
This may also help:
Surf Assistant 2.0
"Save your favorite sites with one click. Sort 4 ways. Never lose a
web site link, and find it fast. Two simple buttons, no menus,
everything is automatic. Surf Assistant installs two simple buttons on
your Intenet Explorer toolbar, no menus to navigate. Click the Add
Surf button and a tone lets you know a web page link has been saved.
Click the View Surf button and your favorite links appear. Just click
and go. SORT -- you can sort by any column. The default 'Used' column
puts your most visited sites on top. FILTER -- did you ever need to
find a page from long ago? The filter sifts through your links by any
I have done a lot of searching, and have not found a program that will
function specifically as you asked (as in, saving surfing 'threads').
I believe that you will have to compromise, by saving links as
'temporary' when you reach something that may be useful, or sorting
