This paper introduces a new approach to browsing the Web of data by combining graph-based visualization with faceted filtering techniques. The graph-based visualization of facets supports the integration of different domains and an efficient exploration of highly structured and interrelated datasets. It allows to access information from distant user-defined perspectives and thereby enables the exploration beyond the borders of Web pages.
