The hyperlinks that are attached to the same design object can be grouped into a fat link for representational purposes, and the activation of a fat link gives a menu of the links contained in it (cf. hyperlink history list), from which individual links can then be activated.
The concept is also covered in Grønbæk and Trigg's extended Dexter model, which cites the Instructional Design Environment.
Now that Web browsers like Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 7 support tabbed browsing, it is possible to have a link that opens up multiple tabs, with one target object in each tab. This allows users to access several destinations in one click. It should be noted, however, that the concept predates the World Wide Web.
