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.
