* Website{{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).

Added DiffLines:

* Most estate agent/real estate websites tend to provoke this. If you've come to one looking for property to buy, you'll no doubt be opening plenty of tabs to compare different listings, and if you're not... you're probably opening loads of tabs to dream.

Added DiffLines:

* Most [[IoGame .io Games]] can easily waste large amounts of one's time due to the ease of joining a game and playing a few rounds... [[JustOneMoreLevel and another...]]


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 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.]]
