'''Browser Narcotic''' websites are any one that results in you opening a dozen tabs in a single session and using up hours of your time. An example of such is Wiki/ThisVeryWiki. Ending up on a WikiWalk is common at such sites, but not universal. The trope name comes courtesy of Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'s alt-text on [[http://xkcd.com/609/ this comic]].

** Similarly, [[http://www.pixiv.net/ Pixiv]], thanks to its recommendation feature being a little ''too'' good, tends to induce {{Wiki Walk}}s. Heaven help you if you start to browse for fanart of one of the more popular series, like ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', ''[[Manga/AxisPowersHetalia Hetalia]]'', ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', ''Music/{{Vocaloid}}'', or ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'', each of which will get you over 150,000 hits.
*** Though the effect is lessened somewhat, as a large part of the website is in Japanese, rendering all but the most basic functions illegible (unless, of course, you can ''read'' Japanese. Then you're on your own, buddy.)

** The effect is lessened due to only adding 5 or 6 anecdotes a day (easily read in 15 minutes), but increased due to its massive archive and five sister sites, Not Always Working/Learning/Romantic/Related and /Friendly.
