    Proposal

    Motivation

    The Wikipedia tab maze is a pretty common experience. I find that I start at an article then have to look up several other linked articles in new tabs to understand the subject well.


    Key Questions

    Is this kind of functionality easily implemented in the existing code? Would this require significant retooling? Could this be prototyped in greasemonkey or an extension?

    Potential Costs

    negligible
