If you place your curser on any internal Wikipedia link, a little yellow label
appears, bearing the name of the page. For instance, the label for [[Eschatology]]
reads "Eschatology". Try it yourself!
This is not very useful at all... You need to click and jump to a different article
and wait in order to see what Eschatology is about...
However, introducing a slight change could really result in a miracle: if every
editing page had a little field where you could write a short description, so that
the label would be "Eschatology - The theological study of the end of the world", we
would be saving thousands of unnecessary clicks a day!

efficient. Lets take another small step in that direction! - Jonatha Shafer, 14:38, 8

The yellow box (it's the "title" attribute of the HTML link)
says where the link actually points to.
This is often but not always the same as the text of the link.
E.g. [[Apache HTTP Server|Apache]] looks like "Apache",
but the title reveals it really points to "Apache HTTP Server".
Extracts would be way too expensive.
