Provide cues and prompts to aid browsing
This feature provides cues and prompts to aid browsing. In a simple case, it may provide clear links to a home page, favorites, and the previous page. In a more complex implementation, this feature could analyze user behavior and suggest the next step (e.g. after a product is added to the user’s shopping cart, it prompts the user on how to complete the purchase or continue shopping).

For users with cognitive disabilities and memory problems, it may be difficult to understand/remember the steps required to browse the Web or complete a task. This feature can provide the cues necessary to use the Web independently.
