I looked at the screenshots, and to be honest saw nothing that
couldn't be done with JavaScript directly in the browser. But then, I
didn't test the package, so there is probably some more goodness
hidden inside.

As a suggestion: I once started a wikipedia browsing software not
dissimilar to this approach; it also showed backlinks in the sidebar,
and it had a navigation page with the current articke in the center
(as icon), and linked/backlinked pages around it. clicking on one
would bring that in the center, and so on...
