Infolinks is a popular online advertising service that automatically adds double-underlined links to keywords in the text of websites using the service. When you pass your cursor over an infolink, a pop-up advertisement window appears. Many users find this extremely annoying, but the links can be disabled by telling your browser not to accept data from sites on the infolinks.com domain.
