This paper proposes a feedback control based adaptive scheme for providing choices for users in a web setting.  We hypothesize that using this scheme for updating the number of choices presented produces an efficient method of user interaction.  We conducted an experiment with seventy-five subjects who had to choose a computer they would buy, given monetary constraints from a large choice set.  We used various algorithms for number of choices to be presented to the users in a time-sequential manner.  One algorithm was the proposed Simple Feedback Algorithm, which was proven by the data collected to be the most quality-efficient.
