users click on the browser bar icon, and a box appears where they can name the trail, add a small comment, and then surf to other related sites. The hope is that "people who are passionate" about topics will create these trails, explained Trailfire chief executive John O'Halloran, and guide others.
The business angle: using what Trailfire knows about the Trails and those viewing and creating them to deliver highly-targeted ads and offers.

OK, an ad-ware toolbar for users, a data set ostensibly open to manipulation by professional paid "trail markers," and the collected "knowledge" replaces our sites in the SERPs, like a Wikipedia for links... Sound like fun, yup.
Perhaps the public is just more inclined to furtive browsing than social browsing. I bet if they released a "see what another user is looking at without him knowing" widget, it would rake in the cash.
