Vague bells are ringing somewhere but I thought I saw something like
this on a Mac?  (in my case somewhere around a Mac SE/30)

Although what I do remember but cannot think of the site name was a
search engine that made a flash presentation of related search terms
that you could click on interactively that was most fun.  The size of
the line indicated the strength and so on..  started with a "J" IIRC.
