No ;) I still believe contents is more important; all these links,
esp. these navigation links are superfluous. A good search engine is
all you need -- frankly, navigations links are a waste of resources
(time and bandwidth). I admit, it nice to click around but going this
way you usually will not find the info you are looking for.
Google, our best search engine, works only because of all those links
on Web pages.
Within Wikipedia, the links are how people know there's an article on
a subject, sometimes one they wouldn't have thought to consult. They're
also how we keep our articles to a manageable size.
