Clicksurf

verb; compounding
to visit a series of Internet sites by following links within them rather than a planned course Interpretation of intended meaning: to access and view a sequence of sites on the World Wide Web by following links rather than typing in individual addresses. Presumed reason for coinage: Refinement of the meaning of the widely accepted term surf; both parts of the compound are well-known to any computer aficionado. Parsing: Compound of click, to press button on mouse, and surf, to access multiple Web sites w/o specific purpose or destination in mind.
