A gravity probabilistic system for assisted browsing is disclosed. The system proposes creating a probabilistic model analogous to gravity which attracts and guides the cursor towards clickable UI elements. A notion of mass is used to determine the strength of the attraction, where more important elements have greater mass and attraction. The system determines a relative mass of a UI element on a web page. When the system receives an input related to a cursor movement from a user of the web page, the system moves the cursor according to the relative mass of the UI element.
