Hyperlink

Hyperlinks, typically referred to simply as links, are a core component of the web browsing experience. Hyperlinks take the form of text and images that, when activated by the user (or automatically by a script or web browser component), take the user to the document or file indicated by the link. Without the extensive use of hyperlinks, the smooth experience of jumping from one document to another on the web (such as jumping from the front page of How-To Geek to an article in the sidebar that interests you) would be greatly disrupted.
