Synthesised queries have been found to perform better than user formulated queries in retrieving relevant documents from the web. This thesis aims to prove that it is possible to perform real time synthesis of queries based on user feedback for interactive web searches and integrate the system with a web browser for seamless user experience. A system is developed that implements the algorithms outlined in previous research and the results obtained by experiments conducted using the system is compared with the original results. The system is able to show similar search performance, measured by precision and recall, but now performs this in real time.
