We introduce a new strategy for controlling the use of anisotropic mesh refinement based upon the gradients of an a posteriori approximation of the error in a computed finite element solution. The efficiency of this strategy is demonstrated using a simple anisotropic mesh adaption algorithm and the quality of a number of potential a posteriori error estimates is considered.
