  • (2016-09-26) Eugene Otto: I usually wind up at Wikipedia after a directed Google search, and rarely explore deeply. But in the few days I've had this extension, I've learned about heliotropic building design, the history of Dreyer's Ice Cream, and Mount Errigal - the 76th tallest peak in Ireland! WikiRoulette enhances the otherwise mundane act of opening a new tab with a serendipitous reminder of the richness of the world, courtesy of Wikipedia. I recommend you try it out for a day or two, and see what you learn.
  • (2016-09-23) T J: Reminds me of Steve Wozniak's Dial-A-Joke phone line I enjoyed as a young man. Easy to call up Wikipedia and learn something new, again and again! Today I stumbled across rugby socks, Arrowverse cast members, and Density matrix renormalization groups!
