Abstract: According to the Linked Data Principles, RDF documents published on the Web should include links to other Linked Data sources, just like HTML documents include links to other Web pages. While traditional Web browsers are capable of rendering Web pages and support hypertext, browsing the Web of Data is difficult due to the lack of readability and of browser support for RDF documents. Hence, this thesis aims at designing and implementing a piece of software in order to turn a classical Web browser into a Linked Data user agent that can retrieve, display, inspect, and modify Linked Data resources based on HTML-like hypertext markup.
