The practice of web-browsing for information or pleasure by clicking a link on one page and then again on the page that opens, usually drifting from topic to topic as takes the reader's interest. While the term clinking is used commonly to refer to all web browsing, it is used more frequently in regards to browsing Wikipedia.

Also known less commonly as 'Playing six degrees of separation'.

An amalgamation of the words clicking and link.
"I was clinking my way through Wikipedia last night. I looked up 'Unions' for school then clinked my way through metal workers, train track making and ended up on this page about a guy who actually survived a steel rod into his brain."
