This tool is usable only on Wikipedia and Mac OS X, but the UI is  
exactly what I expect in terms of hiding/showing the Semantic Web. It  
would be worthwhile to contact the author and talk with him about  
RDF. We could try for example on a personal RDF IMDB, or a personal  
RDF Music list (MusicBrainz) browser/editor.

The origin

My idea for Pathway originated when browsing Wikipedia. I would  
always start off quite focused on a certain subject. Unfortunately,  
Wikipedia articles tend to be full of distracting links, just  
screaming to be clicked on...

Soon enough, I found myself totally lost in myriads of loosely  
related pages. I can't count the time I wasted on backtracing them,  
and if you have a bit of wiki-experience, you've probably encountered  
it too.
What I needed, was an application that could easily archive the path  
I follow through Wikipedia pages.
