Contextify lets designers tailor layouts according to readers’ goal and context, by providing a visual interface for defining sub-layouts based on readers’ inputs. The system combines sub-layouts according to these inputs and generates the layout displayed to the reader.

Contextify accepts inputs for tailoring layout under four read- ing conditions: day (a-b) vs. night (c-d); preview (a-c) vs. full detail (b-d)
- a condition specified by the reader when entering the page or web site: preview or detailed reading
- a contextual condition, night or day
Contextify redefines the relationship between the reader and the designer: combining these conditions results in a layout that can be tailored to four reading contexts.
