In this paper, we present NavTracks, a tool that supports browsing through software. NavTracks keeps track of the navigation history of software developers, forming associations between related files. These associations are then used as the basis for recommending potentially related files as a developer navigates the software system. We present the reasoning behind NavTracks, its basic algorithm, a case study, and propose some future work.
