Group links according to context
A website that is well-designed will already have links grouped according to similar content and subject-matter. However, some websites may have links scattered throughout the page, or may mix together links about very different topics. To improve navigability, this feature should:
- Allow the user to extract and group together all the links from throughout the page.
- If the links were not grouped by the web designer, the system should automatically determine similar links and sort them accordingly.
