Walk2Web is a new web exploration tool that starts you out with a preview of the starting site with its outbound links. From there, you can explore the web visually by “walking” from one link to the next as Walk2Web builds a network of links on your screen. Walk2Web shows the site at your current position in the main preview window, which offers tools to vote the site up or down, to set a public or private bookmark, and to post tags and comments about the site. Registration is free and allows you to use personalized features.

In addition to the main preview, smaller preview windows pop up as you mouse over other links on the screen. You can scroll the screen, either by moving the mouse to the edge of the viewing area, or by using the scrolling arrows. You are not restricted to the path you selected; you can click on any other link on the screen and restart your journey from there.

On Walk2Web’s home page, you can request live help, access the Walk2Web surfer’s blog, and build widgets for your blog or website, such as this button that launches Walk2Web with your site as the preview starting point.

Try it and see!
