    This paper discusses methods to generate and display automatically
    additional hyperlink information to the users of the World Wide Web.

    Current Web browsers make it hard to predict what will happen if a link
    is being followed: users get different information than they expect, a
    new window may be opened, a download starts, or the destination object
    is just not available. Instead of giving an appropriate notification in
    advance, users have to follow a link, check whether the document
    contains the expected information, get back, try another link etc.
    However, usually it is possible to obtain additional hyperlink
    information from several sources like link anchor tags, the userís
    history and web servers. Furthermore, with little enhancements, Web
    servers may include even more additional information to the hyperlinks
    in Web documents. These can be displayed before users select a link to
    improve navigation and reduce the cognitive overhead.
